Well Known Grizzly Struck By Vehicle–but believed still alive
Written by jordanmckamey on June 25, 2019
Wildlife biologists suspect a vehicle struck a well-known grizzly bear in Wyoming.
Grizzly No. 863 got its name from biologists who have fitted her with a tracking collar and are following her movements. This year, she and a cub have been spotted often near Togwotee Pass east of Grand Teton National Park.
Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials recently heard that a vehicle had struck the adult grizzly. They tracked her to a spot three miles (5 kilometers) away.
Wildlife managers say the bear’s tracking collar was not giving off a mortality signal, leading them to think she’s still alive.
