Cameras operated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game caught a grizzly bear and her two cubs foraging in the Island Park area of eastern Idaho.
The female adult bear can be seen investigating a scent in a small tree, while her young cubs attempt to help.
Fish and Game officials - curious if the bear had cubs - say they placed a scent on top of the tree, hoping to draw her out of her den.
The area where the camera is located is on Forest Service lands far from any human interaction, according to IDFG, and researchers had to hike several miles to get there.
The video was taken back in April.
