Where the Bears Roam, Teton Valley Idaho

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with West Group Real Estate

 

We have had some bear sightings this spring and it is important to be “Bear Aware” when you live and play here in Teton Valley Idaho. Here is a recent article from the local news about a grizzly bear that had become a problem to civilized human occupation. Or should I say Humans became a problem to this bear?

black bearsNews Channel 8, bear was euthanized in Teton Valley,

Some things to remember when hiking, riding or biking mountain trails:

·         Make some noise – most bear attacks happen when humans stumble onto a bear that is unaware.

·         Keep your food in a bear proof box and hang it high from a tree when camping.

·         Carry bear spray when you are in known bear country.

·         Don’t leave your gut piles near camp when hunting.

·         Know what your children are doing and where they are.

Be safe and enjoy your adventures. (bear picured is a black bear we photographed in Yellowstone).

Harley,

These sound like great tips.  I agree with you, it sounds like the humans became a problem to the bear that ended up being euthanized.

I suppose it is better than a child eaten by a bear. Thanks for the comment Sondra. :)

All good tips that I learned in Girl Scouts as a kid and have remembered every time I go hiking or camping in an area known for bears.
