MISSOULA — A Polson-area resident shared this video of three young grizzly bear cubs Wednesday morning making themselves at home in her backyard.

The resident tells us the bears were playing with sticks just a few feet from her back porch and said they lingered for quite a while in her backyard.

The resident lives about three miles outside of Polson along the east shore of Flathead Lake.

She told MTN News they have had other grizzly bears walk through their yard in recent years.

The homeowner also told us a large black bear has been frequenting the yard this week as well.

She said this was the first time she was able to get video of the bears.
