As a sure sign that Spring is approaching, the first grizzly bear sighting at Yellowstone National Park has been made.
According to Bozeman Daily Chronicle:
A grizzly bear was sighted for the first time this spring in Yellowstone National Park, prompting officials to remind visitors of bear safety.
According to the park, early Wednesday morning, a park employee observed a grizzly bear between Mammoth Hot Springs and Tower-Roosevelt. Later in the morning, park staff saw two more grizzly bears scavenging carcasses in the northern part of the park.
The bear sightings were the first confirmed of the year, although bear tracks have been seen since Feb. 22.To read more, go here.
