Teton Park Sees Bear Jams

The abundance of animals – especially bears – in Grand Teton National Park has been causing quite a stir over the past couple weeks as well as some significant headaches for traffic there.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the park’s abundant bear population has been putting on quite a roadside show for visitors keeping the park’s wildlife brigade very busy.  As such, Skaggs says visitors need to mind what they are told by members of the brigade or rangers who are managing the wildlife jams, and give the animals space to move. However, it is not just the wildlife that is unpredictable at those traffic jams, and Skaggs says those passing through the congestion need to be watchful for people who have anything but traffic on their minds as they open their car doors or dash across the road.  Skaggs says the more familiar characters among the bear population are very much in evidence again this year. She says 399 has a new set of triplets and as such will be a highlight this year for viewers, 610 has separated from her cubs but has been around while her cubs have split up and have been seen at various locations in the park, and Blondie is also making appearances on the north end of the park.  Skaggs says additionally, there are numerous other bears (both grizzly and black) which are being seen regularly around the park along with elk, moose, bison and other wildlife.

  • Use a decoy to get your goat - September 11, 2014
    I don’t think I’d try it during the rifle season, but if your antelope area’s still open to archery only, a decoy might be just the trick you need. After the pronghorns have broken into their harem groups, the bucks get extremely territorial. Just sit back and watch them sometime. If another buck gets anywhere […]
