Food-Seeking Female Grizzly
An adult female grizzly was trapped southwest of Columbia Falls after making repeated trips into developed areas looking for food with her two cubs. The stress of having to feed cubs pushed her into looking for additional food sources in areas she wouldn't visit if she didn't have the cubs to feed. The added danger is that her cubs will learn from her to find food in developed areas and carry these behaviors into adulthood. This bear was relocated and bear managers will watch to see what happens this year.
