Grizzly bears visit Northwest Montana back yard orchard
A remote camera set up in Bob and Laurie Muth's yard captured photos of grizzly bears. With the help of Defenders of Wildlife and Tim Manley of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, the Muths installed electric fencing to discourage bears from eating fruit trees. "That can only end badly for the bears," Bob Muth said. "A few destroyed fruit trees are a small price to pay to be able to witness the great bear's return. There are things that cannot be put into words. And the aura surrounding a wild grizzly bear is at the top of the list. Grizzlies are mythical, mystical and magnificent creatures. We are blessed to live in a place large enough and wise enough to be part of this breathtaking animal's recovery from the road to extermination."
