This mother (sow) grizzly(Ursus arctos horribilis) is leading her two yearling cubs through the sagebrush looking for elk calves. There are a number of humans nearby and the cubs are a bit nervous so they are staying close. Without that concern, the cubs would likely be spread out further investigating on their own while still keeping a close eye on mom. Swan Lake Flats, Yellowstone.
