The grizzly gossip mill was in full swing Wednesday as word spread that bear 399 and her four cubs were on the move, headed back to their normal territory around Grand Teton National Park.

Once the Wyoming Game and Fish Department heard of the five famous bruins’ northward travels, bear biologist Mike Boyce was on the scene, essentially escorting the grizzly family to the boundary of the park.

“Yep, they are back north,” Boyce said via text. “Watched them cross the park boundary yesterday afternoon. Happy Thanksgiving!”
