Wyoming Wildlife magazine - 35

This female grizzly bear and her cub on a Wyoming highway makes for a great picture, but the chances of bear jams and getting too close to bears makes for dangerous situations for people and bears.

enemy. I've received hate mail. I've had people confront and cuss me out. Some of these people think
they are entitled to be there and do what they want
to do, without interference from anyone. "
Those who are too close to a grizzly bear may be
attacked or become a mauling victim for the nightly
news. If this happens, being too close is the reason
that person got hurt or worse. And with near certainty,
the attacking bear is lethally removed. Those who
get too close don't pull the trigger, but they load the
cartridge in the rifle.
Snow and cold now blanket the Wyoming high
country. Bears that regularly visit roadways are deep in
slumber unaware of the dangers they survived. Other
grizzlies, content to be loners in Wyoming's yawning

landscapes, know nothing of the efforts from Game
and Fish, National Park Service and the Interagency
Grizzly Bear Study Team who diligently focus on
finding balance for keeping people and bears safe.
The story of Ursus arctos horribilis, the grizzly, is
one of beating the odds of elimination in the lower
48. The only thing sweeter than reading and looking
at photos of them is seeing one in the wild. Wyoming
is the place to do it ... responsibly.
- Tim Christie is a writer and photographer based in Coeur d'
Alene, Idaho, and is a regular contributor to Wyoming Wildlife.
He's photographed bears in North America for decades and
was attacked by a grizzly when he inadvertently scared its cub
while photographing a white-tailed buck in a national park. He
continues to photograph bears from a vehicle or near one, and
with a telephoto lense.
