Biologists with the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team have begun conducting annual scientific grizzly bear research operations in the Greater Yellowstone area to monitor the population and activities of grizzly bears within the ecosystem.  Study Team Spokesman Chuck Schwartz says researchers have set up baited traps in various locations around Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and the six adjacent forests, as the radio collaring and study continues through July 7th. Schwartz explains the study is part of the long-term recovery program for grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone area. Schwartz says none of the trap sites are located near any established hiking trails or backcountry campsites.  However, should any back country users happen upon a study area which will be clearly posted, they asked to stay out of the area.
