bears

Honey, I’m home! This young bear found its way into a Big Sky vacation rental home through a window screen recently. While it’s typically OK to leave a window open while you’re home, it’s advised to shut and lock them when you’re away so these curious animals don’t have the opportunity to easily get inside.

Bad year for bears

Breaking and entering. Damaging rental vehicles. Stealing food. Digging in trash. Distracting drivers. The rap sheet is a mile long. 

     The offenders in question: black bears.

Live wild, live free

The wet, cool weather of the past week has kept the bears close to the roads around Tower as they work the grass in the lower elevations. On one day, we got really lucky and saw nine black bears before 10 a.m. One sow with triplets was in view for about an hour just before the Tower Junction.
