    MONTANA GRIZZLY BEAR NOTICE:


    In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Montana Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field. We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and smells like pepper.

    GMREEVES that is to good. Hope none of that bear poop has any remains of one of your nice cane rods.

    Is there a number the park service would consider too many bears?

    Are you kiddin' Sam? Twins are rare for black bears and triplets are even rarer. I've never seen or heard of five cubs until that picture.
