“More Bear Attacks Could Come As Food Sources Are Depleted
Hungry Bears in Yellowstone Put Hikers, Campers and Themselves at Risk

With permanent food sources becoming more and more scarce, the grizzly truth is more bears are likely to hunt for food around your campsite.
Grizzly bear recovery coordinator says young bears could be placed in a zoo.
The Western Grizzly population has nearly tripled in the last 35 years in the Yellowstone National Park area, from under 200 to nearly 600. Their need for food and territory have caused them to spill out of the park's "Primary Conservation Area" (PCA).
Some wildlife authorities warn that this year with a shortage of food, specifically spawning cutthroat trout and the seeds from white bark pine trees, more hungry and potentially dangerous bears will be out scavenging.”
