In Montana, Be Bear Aware

Sure seems early for this but here we go from Advnture, people DO die from Grizzly Bear attacks, and they happen more than you think. There are punishments in place for not following the rules.

  • Last year a woman was killed in Yellowstone from a bear attack
  • 2 experienced hikers that practiced wildlife safety were attacked and killed by a Grizzly in Banff national park
  • Man attacked by Grizzly near Big Sky, loses lower jaw
  • 2021: a woman was fined and put in jail for 4 days after getting too close to a mother Grizzly and her cubs in Yellowstone.  She was also banned from the park for a year
