"Meetings Slated on Grizzly Conflicts"

"With grizzly bears being found farther out from the Rocky Mountain Front than in past years, officials with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks are holding community meetings — including one in Wolf Creek next month — to discuss better ways to co-exist with them.

Game Warden Bryan Golie said grizzly bears’ presence has increased steadily east of the Front during the past five years, including around the Wolf Creek and Dearborn areas. He adds that the bears typically don’t cause any conflicts, but officials get quite a few people calling about them.

The bears are gradually moving onto the plains to make use of what was once traditional grizzly bear summer habitat."
