GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — The National Park Service says bears in Grand Teton National Park are active again and looking for food.

Park staff received reports of bear tracks March 15. Park officials said Monday that the reports are consistent with long-term data that show half of adult males bears are out of their winter dens by mid-March every year.

Now that bears are coming out of hibernation, park officials are reminding hikers to travel in groups of at least three, to stay at least 100 yards from bears and to make noise. They also say to carry bear spray — and know how to use it.
