Bear Proofing Public Sites--Upper Yaak II

Bear Proofing Public Sites--Upper Yaak II
Another view of a "green box site" opened in the Upper Yaak by the County Department of Environmental Health and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. Here dumpsters are enclosed within chainlink, barb wire and electric fences. To further protect bears, the dumpsters are only available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the months of May to October. For more on using electric fences to create bear proof spaces, contact an FWP bear manager.
