Bear Spotted Near Blue Creek

Posted: Updated:

A young black bear was seen wandering around the Blue Creek area this morning.

Bob Gibson with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks says the bear, which they estimate to be about 2 years old, was spotted between 7 and 7:30 AM.

He says the bear came into the valley area because the grass is greener.

Gibson says the bear found garbage at a home near Blue Creek School. After the garbage was cleaned up, the bear wandered off to continue grazing on grass. Gibson says they won't do anything about the bear unless it becomes a problem.
