Bear Rampage

With hunting season quickly approaching here is a little warning to stay on your toes and pay attention to what is happening around you.  While this happened in a campground and not to somebody out hunting it very well could of.

There was an update on this

There was an update on this story on Friday the 30th and that was the DOW had trapped a sow grizzly and two of her cubs on Thursday and then caught her third cub on Friday.  Right now they are waiting for DNA testing to make sure that these were the bears that cause the death and other problems.

I don't believe I would camp

I don't believe I would camp at that campground as it is the site of previous attacks. But I do understand it how you leave you camp site. Properly store food, clean and store cooking utensils and scented items stored properly as well.
