Bear Sightings this spring

In late May there was a meeting in Valier, Montana. Over 200 people showed up to talk about bears, both black and grizzly, coming onto their old stomping grounds on the Montana prairies.

We know that the Montana prairie was the first home to bears in this country from the notes of explorers like Lewis and Clark who reported they had bear troubles all through Montana.

Now those bears reside for the most part in the Rocky Mountain Front from the Rattlesnake wilderness area, to the Bob Marshall, Big Bear, Scapegoat, Glacier and Waterton Parks as well as the Swan and Whitefish Ranges.

There are so...
