Have you ever seen such a happy group of grizzlies?

It looks like a tree like no other but grizzly bears in Kananaskis Country can't seem to be able to resist it allure.

Video captured by wildlife cameras during May and June 2013 shows perfectly how a grizzly goes crazy scratching himself on a tree along a trail before he is joined by several of the other bruins who also join in on the fun.

According to Alberta Parks, which posted the footage to YouTube, video such as that captured by the cameras is used by researchers to "better identify population distribution, animal activity and key biodiversity hotspots."

For the rest, the images are arguably an awe-inspiring reminder of the magnificent wildlife that resides in our backyard.
