Preventing conflicts with bears

this year, bears have traveled the river corridors – Sun, Marias, Dearborn and Teton – east from the Rocky Mountain Front looking for natural foods.

But the animals can also be attracted to unprotected opportunistic foods, like grain, livestock and livestock feed, garbage and pet food.

Folks who live and recreate on those river corridors should pick up food attractants and protect livestock.
