KALISPELL - Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials are looking for information about a grizzly bear that was found shot along the Swan River near Montana Highway 83 in Bigfork.

Game Warden Chuck Bartos investigated, and a necropsy determined that the bear had been shot.

FWP is looking for any information regarding this incident.  Anyone with information on this case should call Warden Chuck Bartos (253-2934), or 1-800-TIP-MONT.  Callers can remain anonymous and a reward may be available.
