Grizzly Bear Population Monitoring--Glacier Park
This 3-year old female grizzly was trapped and fitted with a GPS satellite tracking collar and released to be part of the grizzly bear population study being carried out by FWP in northwestern Montana. By using remote cameras to monitor the traps, FWP avoided trapping this bear on other later occassions when she showed up at new trapping sites to try to obtain the bait used in the traps. Grizzly bears are extremely quick to learn news ways of finding food.
