(KSL News) Ever wonder what a bear does in the woods? Now, thanks to some surveillance cameras, you can actually see grizzly bears in their natural habitat.

Kate Kendall, a field biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, set up the cameras as part of a study.

Originally, Kendall set out to determine the grizzly population by collecting hair from the bears. She then realized she had a unique opportunity to capture the secret lives of bears.

"You don't often get a lot of opportunity to observe bears just in their natural behavior, so it has been just been fascinating to get to see what they do when people aren't around," Kendall said.

The video captured bears rubbing against trees and interacting with other wildlife.
