The sow and cubs that the Renners killed were part of a bear study being conducted by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game as well as the United States Forest Service. Because the bears were part of a study, their den was under video surveillance.  
The video which was filmed in April 2018, shows the Renners skiing up to the den and then Owen firing two shots at the denning sow. Andrew then kills the shrieking newborn bear cubs and discards their bodies away from the den.
