KALISPELL — The potential reward has increased to $6,750 for anyone with information about
the death of two grizzly bears found near Bigfork last November.
Individuals have anonymously donated $5,750 as an increased reward for information that leads
to a conviction. The Montana Outdoor Legacy Foundation is facilitating the reward between the
donors and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, which also provides up to $1,000 for information.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668), or Warden
Justin Slobuszewski at 406-253-2934. Callers may remain anonymous. If the information leads to
a conviction, callers could be eligible for a cash reward.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and FWP are investigating the deaths near Bigfork. The
carcasses of an adult female bear and cub were located Nov. 9 on Bear Creek Road near Montana
Highway 83. No additional information is available at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
