Yeah- pretty much sums it all up.

"Grizzly bears in the lower 48 states are protected under the federal Endangered Species Act, and it is illegal to harm, harass or kill them, except in cases of self-defense or the defense of others.

According to a recent Field & Stream article, 2021 has been a bad year for bear attacks in the Lower 48, and the season when we see more attacks is just beginning. The frequency of attacks is likely due to an increase in the Lower 48 grizzly population along with more people recreating and living in grizzly country.

“Some people don’t even realize that there can be grizzly bears around,” U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Grizzly Bear Recovery Coordinator Hilary Cooley told F&S. “We have more people moving to the West. We have more people recreating in grizzly bear territory. There’s record visitation at National Park Service and Forest Service areas. Every biologist I talk to is like ‘there are people camped all over the place.’ And a lot of people are coming from elsewhere and don’t know that their gas grill or cooler that they leave on the picnic table on the campsite will be a potential bear attractant. Most of those conflicts are preventable.”"

Agree.. would have been different had they not been there..

Griz in Wyoming and Montana, imho, are way more dangerous than those in Alaska where they are still being hunted.. The ones in WY and MT have not been hunted since the early 80's..they have no fear of man.. and the populations have exploded.. but, Fish and Game will not release that info as it owuld be ammo to have a hunting season so they continue to stick to the bullshit narrative that there are 6 to 800 in the greater Yellowstone Eco System of over 2 MILLION acres.. my friend who has a small parcel of land..20 acres..had 17 diff ones caught on game cam's in 2017.. 17 diff bears..

Same happened in Glacier..they started collecting hair samples for dna testing to determine the number.,results were never released and study was discontinued.. political bullshit.. as is everything else these days..

Have a good friend who rode the parks and forest for 28 years for F&G in MT --he said there is 2 to 3 times the number they are reporting.. shocker I know, that a gov department would lie..

Same here, Ripp. The grizzly population has increased to the point they are spotted/observed where never before.
Same with black bears as not a lot of people are eating them these days. That might change in the near future, as long as we still have the means to kill them.
I might have to sharpen my swords.

Griz chases truck down highway near Browning MT..

At least this proves they are not aggressive in Montana at least...
