The warmer weather is not only melting ice from area roads and walkways, it is waking up some of the hibernating wildlife now as well – most notably bears.  There have been reports now of bear activity in Grand Teton National Park, the Gros Ventre Wilderness, and Yellowstone.  Yellowstone Spokesman Al Nash says members of park staff have reported bear sightings as well as footprints indicating bears are starting to emerge from their dens.  Nash says as the bears awaken, they will be…..well, as hungry as bears; and they will look to easy food sources like carrion.  Nash obviously urges park visitors to avoid any proximity to winter-kill carcasses and to be very vigilant for nearby bears. Furthermore, Nash says if you are planning any outdoor activity in the Greater Yellowstone Region, be sure to carry bear spray.
