Earlier this month, a woman was spotted walking towards a female grizzly bear and her two cubs in the Roaring Mountain area of Yellowstone National Park. Now, park rangers are seeking information as to her identity and have posted their request on social media.

According to the Facebook post, the incident occurred on May 10 around 4:45 p.m. at the north end of the Roaring Mountain parking lot. Fortunately, despite the female grizzly charging, the woman simply walked away from the encounter. You can watch the video here.

Visitors should give animals that live within the park distance if they happen upon them as the animals could attack if scared or provoked. If you know who this woman is, the National Parks Service Investigative Service Branch asks that you contact them either online or by email.
