Grizzly Bears Begin To Stir East Of Yellowstone
WAPITI, Wyo. (AP) — Wildlife officials say they are getting reports of grizzly bear sightings at lower elevations east of Yellowstone National Park.
In response, the Shoshone and Bridger-Teton national forests have placed food storage regulations into effect.
Forest Service wildlife biologist Andy Pills tells The Billings Gazette (http://bit.ly/ylM1MT ) that adult male grizzly bears typically start to show activity this time of year.
Females with cubs don’t generally emerge until late April or early May.
