Grizzly bear relocated near the North Fork

By | June 12, 2013

The Daily Inter Lake reports that 4-year-old male grizzly bear has been captured near the lower Marias River and relocated west of Glacier National Park after a family reported lambs and a calf had been killed. The 440-pound bear was captured Sunday. Because it had not been captured before, a radio collar was placed on the bear and it was released near the North Fork of the Flathead River.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks grizzly bear manager Mike Madel tells the Great Falls Tribune (http://gftrib.com/13ApUfc ) that a family reported last Friday that a couple of lambs had been killed and the next day they found a dead calf. Officials confirmed a grizzly killed the animals.

Madel says FWP is working with the family to install electric fencing to protect their livestock.
