Bears Wake Up

Grizzly-Bear

With somewhat warmer springtime weather being found at lower elevations now, it is time to expect bears to begin emerging from hibernation.  Wildlife officials say they have been getting reports of grizzly bear sightings at lower elevations east of Yellowstone National Park. As yet, says Yellowstone National Park Spokesman Al Nash, there have been no verified reports of bears being seen in the park.  However, Nash admits it is about time that they begin emerging. Once they do emerge, Nash says they will be looking for the easy food – like the carcasses or winter kill. As such, Nash urges park visitors to stay clear of carrion in their travels around the park in order to avoid a confrontation.
