Montana Grizzly Encounter was founded in 2004 and has received lots of national media coverage for not only their mission to help save endangered grizzlies, but to provide a home for those bears that can't live in the wild.
It's true that some things never seem to change at Yellowstone National Park, but a new family retro video shows that other things have. It dates back to the 1950's and shows how many tourists used to hand-feed bears.
I want to be clear that no bears were harmed in the making of this video. It was an innocent moment when a bear misjudged a stream and ended up going over one of the waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park.
Rep. Paul Fielder (R-Thompson Falls) sent us an update on the wildlife related bills he is working on before the Montana Legislature. Plus, his bill to eliminate taxes on social security is now off the table for reconsideration.
If you visit Yellowstone National Park now, you'll find feeding bears solidly in the "don't" column. But, there was an era many years ago when people were not only allowed to feed bears in Yellowstone, the practice was sort of encouraged.
So much cuteness. A family checked their security cam video and noticed something unusual. First, a bear family was spotted outside of their home. As an added bonus, the video also showed one of the bear cubs trying to catch the snowflakes.
