Grizzly Sighting Suggests Eastward Expansion

posted on July 6, 2020
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks staff confirmed the sighting of a grizzly bear in north-central Montana last month. Near Big Sandy, the sighting is the farthest east a grizzly has been sighted in the modern day. Its travel rate of more than 10 miles per day, suggests it is a young, wandering male. It has thus far gotten into some dog food and garbage, and killed two chickens.

“We try our best to communicate the locations of grizzly bears in areas where people don’t expect them to be or where they are new,” grizzly bear conflict specialist Wesley Sarmento said.

“However, we never know where they will show up next,” Sarmento said, noting the bear could be anywhere within a 100-square-mile area on any given day.
