A Wild Bear of Montana From Near Whitefish
This large old male grizzly was caught in a leg snare near Whitefish set by bear managers to capture female grizzlies for a population trend monitoring project. He was released after being fitted with a VHF radio collar to allow study of his home range. This bear was 20-25 years old with no history of being near or coming into conflict with people.
