Bear, Mountain Lion, and Wolf Relocation

Throughout the year, FWP is called on to respond to wildlife-most notably black bears-that come in close contact with homeowners and residential areas. FWP also responds to calls related to grizzly bears, and, less frequently, mountain lions. FWP is also responsible for calls from ranchers and others whose livestock or pets have encounters with wolves.

On this Web page visitors can keep track of bears, mountain lions, and wolves that are trapped or otherwise captured and relocated to another area.

In Montana, wildlife and humans live in close contact with each other every day. Visit the Living with Wildlife pages for tips on how to deal with wildlife that enters neighborhoods and backyards.
