An Emergency area closure has been implemented in the Buck Ridge Yellow Mule area. The closure is necessary after an individual was attacked by a grizzly bear and shot at and likely wounded the bear. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and Forest Service staff are investigating the incident and are trying to locate the bear.

The closure includes the area from the Forest boundary along Forest Service Road #2599 (Buck Creek Ridge Road) to its terminus at the Buck Ridge Trailhead. The closure continues westerly along Buck Ridge Trail #10 to where it meets the Custer Gallatin/Beaverhead-Deerlodge Forest Boundary. It then follows the Forest boundary northwesterly and northerly to section 16 and continues easterly along the Forest boundary back to Buck Creek Ridge Road (FS Road #2599).
