Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is investigating a grizzly bear mortality in the Eureka Basin of the south Gravelly Mountains, after a hunter reportedly shot the bear in self-defense Oct. 26.
Two separate grizzly bear attacks resulted in three injured hunters on the west side of the Gravelly Mountain range on Monday according to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. It is unclear whether one or more bears were involved. FWP is asking hunters to leave the area, and the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest is closing Cottonwood Road.
