Bear biologists with Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks recently captured two adult male grizzly bears in northwest Montana.

The bears were captured as biologists were searching for a female grizzly to move to the Cabinet Mountains as part of the Augmentation Program to maintain the grizzly population in that region.

The two bears that were captured were males so they were safely released on-site without being drugged or handled.
