Grizzly Still Roaming GTNP

January 4, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
399 winter

A female grizzly bear, believed to possibly be 399 along with two cubs was reported last week still out and about.  Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says a reliable spotter reported seeing the bear with her two cubs crossing Ditch Creek from East to West last Wednesday.  While bears typically hibernate beginning in early December, Skaggs says they have been known not to as long as there is food available.  This being a mild year, Skaggs says, that is apparently the case.  Furthermore, Skaggs says, 399 has a habit of “pushing the limits” on what is expected.  Skaggs says the important thing is that residents in the area be aware of the continued bear activity, and be careful not to have bird feeders, pet food or trash where it might be available to the roving bears.
