Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Dept., Bear Hunting Magazine

Montana wildlife officials reported that a three-year old, 271-pound male grizzly was captured Saturday between U.S. Highway 2 and the Whitefish River in Northwest Montana. The bear had been in the area for about a week and was reported feeding on unsecured garbage and apples.

The bear had not been captured before, and most likely came from the Whitefish Range, so he was released on Sunday in the northern part of the Whitefish Range in the Whale Creek Drainage. after being fitted with a GPS radio collar.
