As part of ongoing efforts required under the Endangered Species Act to monitor the population of grizzly bears in the Northern Continental  Divide Ecosystem, various wildlife agencies will be capturing the animals for research and management. Pre-baiting and scientific operations are once again about to begin in parts of Western Montana and will continue intermittently through the end of October. Traps will be set, periodically on private lands where bear-human conflicts are occurring. Information Officer from the Montana FWP, Vivaca Crowser says monitoring the bears is vital to their ongoing recovery.

In order to attract the bears, biologists will use natural food sources such as fresh road-killed dear and elk. Crowser says all areas where work is being conducted will have warning signs posted along the major access point to the trapping site.
