Trail cam photos capture grizzly bear hoedown

WILDLIFE WATCHING — Enjoy an intimate family moment with grizzly bears attracted to a scratching pole by some sort of powerful lure, a bruin's equivalent of ecstasy.  

The video starts slow and builds to a frenzy of rubbing. Fun.

According to PetaPixel.com, the trail cam photos were compled by Glenn Naylor, a Park Ranger, photography enthusiast and founding member of Bow Valley WildSmart who lives and works in Alberta. 

Compiled into a video called “What goes on when you are not there!” this camera wound up snapping a bonanza of photos.

Naylor says he doesn’t want the photos to give people the wrong impression about bears in general. Although the footage is cute and humorous, he says, “bears are not cuddly and friendly, they are wild animals that should be treated with caution and respect.”
