I am so happy my home state is finally “the best” at something. Now seriously I actually live about 25 miles from Glacier National park where most of these attacks have taken place and the Flathead National Forest is literally at my back door. In town I have only seen one grizzly bear, while I typically see a black bear about once every few weeks durning the non-hibernation months.

We currently have three large cans of bear spray at the door ready to go with us on our outdoor adventures.
