The Flathead Beacon reports that with the arrival of spring, bears are emerging from their mountain dens and descending into the lower valleys in search of food, and one young bruin has already pried its way into a Whitefish home to snack on leftover Easter candy. Read the full story here.
The Flathead National Forest Facebook page also talks about our bears waking up. They say… The bears are awake and hungry! Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks released this grizzly yesterday on the Flathead National Forest after getting into chickens north of Columbia Falls. For information about living and recreating in bear country visit http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/flathead/home/ and they have a great video of a bear release on the North Fork. Check that out here.
