A wildlife biologist for Montana's Red Lodge area said that he has seen more grizzly bears so far this spring in the area, than he has any other time in 30 years.

The grizzly bears are out, and black bear hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts are told to be cautious in the Beartooth Front area west of Red Lodge. Grizzlies may be in the same wooded areas where the hunters are looking for black bears.

By warning people about the numerous sightings of grizzlies, they are hoping to keep down bear/human incidents. Grizzlies are on the endangered species list, but have been mistakenly shot by hunters. Also wildlife managers have had to kill grizzlies that have attacked humans. From The Republic.
