I have many born and raised Montana relatives that have never been to Yellowstone Park. I also know a lot of people right here in Billings that have never been Yellowstone Park or seen a bear in the wild even though the park is 120 miles from Billings.

Being from Montana, really has no bearing on how much knowledge you have about wildlife, in the last 10 years the influx of people moving here from other states has been pretty high and back in my teaching days, it is amazing how many actual born Montanans have very little knowledge about wildlife.

As the summer wears on, I suspect at the least that bear will be at least moved, most likely the bear will be put down because he shows no fear of humans. Breaking in to cars is exactly what we are trying to keep from happening. Bears in Glacier and Yellowstone have not figured that one out quite yet and we don't want them to, that would lead to a whole new set of regulations that people won't follow.

It is a shame that the parks are so popular now, that quite a bit of the wildlife is loosing or has lost its fear of humans.

Holey moley. Hard to believe those folks were actually from Montana - seems like they would have had more sense. Why didn't they honk the horn or just drive slowly away???? Yeah, seems like a bad end in store for that bear, and pity the folks in a car when a window or door aren't fully closed and the bear discovers how to get in. Creepy.

Not good. Sadly I fear this bear could likely have a bad future.

I believe I'd want more between me and the bear than that piece of window glass! He obviously isn't shy of people.

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Grizzly Bear on top of car

The other day on Billings Q2 news station they had a report on a Laurel family video taping a grizzly bear just outside of Cooke City. My take on the bear is that someone has been feeding it from a car as its behavior is not normal. Has anyone seen this bear or know about its history?

The shorter Q2 report (background information and shorter video).

Yellowstone Related News and Politics • Re: Lamar Canyon Alpha Male wolf 925M injured UPDATE: deceas

Talking about middle-of-the-night forays to the restroom my wife once got up to head to the restroom at a Lake Tahoe campground quite a few years ago and before she reached the restroom she saw a black bear raise its ominous head inside a five foot tall garbage can, the kind of can picked up by big trucks. The garbage can was right outside the restroom.Needless to say, she quickly retreated to our tent trailer.

Excellent point, Dave. Otherwise one could be renting a half-discharged can? No thanks.

I hope you're right, Dave, about a buddy speaking up. I believe I heard of another group offering an additional reward. Will see if I can find that. I know one of these groups is planning on plastering wanted posters all over Gardiner.

Two organizations are offering rewards in addition to whatever the state offers. I've read the funds have reached $5000 and is growing. Maybe that will provide some incentive for someone to come forward.

Update: Fund is now over $6000
