Bears Follow Rules Wildlife

 

People and bears lived in better harmony in Glacier National Park last year compared with 1992, when nine black bears and three grizzlies had to be killed after tourist encounters. In 1994, only one black bear was killed by park rangers after it became addicted to food often left out by negligent campers.

Three black bears were translocated within the park after encounters with humans last year compared with 16 in 1992.
