Bears beginning to emerge from winter dens

WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Wildlife officials say they are getting reports of grizzly bear sightings at lower elevations east of Yellowstone National Park.

In response, the Shoshone and Bridger-Teton national forests have placed food storage regulations into effect.

Adult male grizzly bears typically start to show activity this time of year.

Females with cubs don’t generally emerge until late April or early May.
