After the cubs continue to walk around and explore, it appears as if the animals hear something which frightens two of the cubs away.

One of the remaining cubs continues to investigate near the door which the mother was doing earlier. 

The mother then goes to the left side of the porch with one of the cubs returning. 

‘We noticed the camera detected motion on the north end of the cabin,’ Nolan told Storyful.

‘So we immediately tuned into the rest of our footage and found Mama bear at our front door.’

 She also added that her family attempted to scare the bears off by screaming into the doorbell camera to get them to go away.  

‘We know better than to encourage them, so locals know to scare them off and leave no food around,’ she added.
