FWP responds to sheep depredation far outside normal expected limits.

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is committed to ‘thinking outside the box’ when looking at how to manage potential conflicts between grizzly bears and livestock growers. FWP has assembled a great team of ‘forward thinkers’ who acknowledge that their approach is best if it is dynamic and responsive rather than traditional and reactive. It is very sad to see growers experience losses such as this, but with the help of Montana’s experienced and innovative bear management specialists, and the financial assistance from groups such as Defenders of Wildlife for electric fencing, we hope this producer AND the bears will soon be protected!
