Wildlife Warning For Golfers

The Montana State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising golfers to
take extra precautions and be on the alert for bears while in the
Gallatin,
Helena and Lewis and Clark National Forests golf courses.

They advise golfers to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells
on
their clothing to alert, but not startle the bears unexpectedly.

They also advise you to carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with
a
bear. It is also a good idea to watch for signs of bear activity.

Golfers should be able to recognize the difference between black bear
and
grizzly bear droppings on the golf course. Black bear droppings are
smaller
and contain berries and possibly squirrel fur.

Grizzly bear droppings have bells in them and smell like pepper spray.
