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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
