Grizzlies Seen In GTNP

March 23, 2012 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
Grizzly-Bear

The warnings have been sounded from the forest surrounding Yellowstone National Park and more recently, inside the park itself.  Grand Teton National  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says park personnel have spotted grizzly bears out of hibernation and roaming both the park and John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway now. With that increased bear activity along with increasing outdoor activity in the park as the weather continues to improve, Skaggs says appropriate precautions need to be taken.  Among them, always carry bear spray wherever you go in the park, go out in groups of two or more, and keep your distance from any bears you might see. Skaggs says a distance from bears of 100 yards or more is recommended – and she points out that grizzly bears now may be expected in about any portion of the park as their range continues to spread.
