By downgrading protections for our greatest National Parks in order to allow noisy vehicles to drown out nature, we are not protecting these wonderful experiences so many generations before us have enjoyed.
It turns out Grizzlies roamed these mountains more than a century ago. The black bears were actually introduced to the region in 1933 and can sometimes be seen lumbering through the neighborhoods foraging for food.
This summer in Yellowstone National Park, on two separate occasions, two men lost their lives from encounters with grizzly bears. Both of these men did not carry bear pepper spray, and if they would have, they would likely still be alive.
