Jason D.B. Kauffman has an excellent piece on grizzly bears leaving the Montana Rockies for the plains to the east and the trouble that is causing with locals. It's going to be awhile before the less than environmentally friendly ranchers of north central Montana get used to this and stop poaching the bears, but it's a good sign overall, both in terms of overall bear populations and in the expansion of the range out of the very marginal habitat of the mountains.
