Grizzly Bear Shot, Killed Near Ovando

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Montana's Fish, Wildlife and Parks is looking for information on the shooting death of a grizzly bear.

The adult female was found Sunday about three and a half miles northeast of Ovando. The bear had three cubs of the year, and FWP was able to trap two of the cubs. Multiple attempts to capture the third cub were unsuccessful. The captured cubs will be placed in the Bronx Zoo.  

FWP bear management specialists say there is a chance the lone cub will survive the winter on its own, and FWP may make additional attempts to locate the bear if it receives reports of sightings.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-TIP-MONT.

Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to a conviction.
