AVON – Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks wildlife specialists captured and moved a male grizzly bear on May 6 in the Ophir Creek area northeast of Avon.

Over the past month, several grizzly bears have been confirmed in the immediate area, in close proximity to cattle calving grounds on local ranches. A grizzly killed a yearling cow in early April in the vicinity, and bears have continued to remain in the area since then.
