Large Bear-proof Lockers Donated

Two over-sized bear-resistant lockers have been donated to Bridger Teton National Forest for use by outfitters to store livestock feed and other attractants during the upcoming hunting season.  The Greater Yellowstone Coalition has provided a pair of eight foot by eight foot by ten foot lockers to be placed near Turpin Meadows and Pacific Creek on the northern end of the forest.  Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says these sites were strategically selected since the area draws a high outfitter use rate by those accessing the Teton Wilderness.  She says by law, outfitters in the areas must make sure food, trash, toiletries, livestock feed, pet foot and other scented items are properly stored so that they are not available to bears.  Chris Colligan of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition says his organization was specifically looking for a proactive solution to address an area that has chronic conflicts.
