Happened to be driving down HWY 89 from Many Glacier on Wednesday afternoon. Outside the park, about 2 miles north of St. Mary, saw a rather large grizzly who happened to be dumpster diving along the lake side of the highway. Told the ranger about it at the Glacier National Park entrance...but she only seemed mildly surprised. The bear must have passed close to the campground at the south end of the lake to get to the dumpsters. Sleep tight everyone in the KOA campground.....

Surprised they don't require bear proof dumpsters.
Who do you mean by they? This was outside the park. The last time I checked, we are still living in a free country. The people in the dumpy house about 50 yards down the road evidently don't mind Yogi stopping by every day to have a bite.
Had a conversation with the store owner at the RV park where I was staying. He told me the area where I spotted the bear was on the reservation. He said "they" don't care about the bears and do what they do to draw the bear close to their house, giving them justification to shoot it. Wonder what a bear skin rug sells for these days?
