Notice of Area Closure Ahead

The Park Service does the best it can to provide this sort of advance warning. Areas are also sometimes closed for moose (usually for being dangerously over-zealous in protecting their calves), and last year (2005), an area in the NW corner of the park was even closed off due to wolves! The wolf closure was highly unusual, and done not because of human danger from the animal, but to prevent any chance of interaction between wolves and humans.

The Grizzly Sow and Two Cubs were, erm, "Removed" from Old Man Lake in Summer of 2009.

Re: hey

I remember reading something about that in the paper. The Grizzly had been raising her family in that area for years, and gradually lost fear of humans....

Thanks for the update.
