Video Extra: Grizzly bears visit Montana home

Posted: Updated:

As spring continues, grizzly bears are increasingly making their presence known along the Rocky Mountain Front.

Linda Holden shared video with KTVQ sister station KRTV in Great Falls showing two grizzlies visiting her home several miles west of Valier on Friday.

Linda and her husband John were inside their home when they recorded the two bears.

"Our 'bear man supervisor' Wesley Sarmento came right out (10 minutes) and chased the bears away," Linda said.

She said that the bears were last seen heading west.

Sarmento is a bear management specialist with the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks.

According to Linda, Sarmento estimated that the bears were two or three years old, and probably siblings.

"They just got out of hibernation so have to fatten up, but hopefully not at my place," she said.
