The North Fork has a new grizzly, shipped in from east of the divide . . .
A 390-pound grizzly bear captured west of Great Falls near Simms on Wednesday night has been collared, tagged and relocated to the north fork of the Flathead River, near the Canadian border.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Bear Management Specialist Mike Madel said the young male and his sibling are responsible for the deaths of three goats earlier this week.
The bear’s sibling was not captured and will remain on the east side of the divide, because bears tend to get in more trouble when they’re together, Madel said.
