WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) — Glacier National Park officials have deployed a game camera and empty "decoy" tent at a popular campground to watch for a bear that's believed to have torn into an unoccupied tent.

Park officials say an animal ripped through the side of the tent at Rising Sun Campground on Friday and pulled out bedding and pillows. Hair samples and a scat pile believed to be from a bear were found at the scene.

Increasing black bear activity in Missoula’s Rattlesnake neighborhood is forcing the city’s Animal Control agency to crack down on garbage ordinance violations.

Animal Control has handed out 100 letters of notice to homeowners in the Rattlesnake for not complying with waste storage requirements in a bear buffer zone.

The for-profit arm of APR is paying its neighboring ranchers if they agree to be wildlife friendly.

Some ranchers in central and northeastern Montana resent APR, and its wealthy backers, for buying or leasing their neighbor’s land and turning loose free-roaming bison.
