Hungry grizzlies are on the move in Jackson Hole

Hungry grizzlies

Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Teton County Wyoming, and the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation are warning that grizzly bears with cubs have begun emerging from their dens in Teton County now.

As bears become active this spring, BearWise Jackson Hole urges residents and visitors to secure attractants of any kind and be bear aware. As the grizzly bear population expands within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, bears continue to disperse across their historical range but also into more populated areas.

All of Teton County is now considered occupied grizzly bear habitat. The combined agencies admonish everyone to properly store all attractants to ensure a bear does not obtain a food reward, and as such will remain wild and out of trouble.
