Meeting Discusses Grizzly Bear Status In Bozeman

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Nineteen different agencies from three states are gathering in Bozeman this week to discuss the status of grizzly bears in the Yellowstone ecosystem.

The two day meeting brings together agencies from Montana, Idaho and Wyoming to discuss the status of grizzly bears.

The Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee opened up its meeting to the public this week.

Agencies that help manage grizzly bear recovery efforts presented the status of grizzly bears in the area, and how many bears die from human - bear conflicts.

The subcommittee says only 25 grizzlies have died so far this from conflicts with humans...compared to last year when there were 56.

"That is due to a lot of good work by the agencies and the organizations to educate people and provide the tools to minimize human grizzly bear conflicts," said Greater Yellowstone Coalition Executive Director Caroline Byrd.

The meeting continues Thursday at the Hilton Garden Inn.

It goes from 8 a.m. to noon.
