There’s something absolutely frightening lurking through Montana right now…


According to reports, there’s a 400-pound grizzly bear terrorizing campgrounds near Missoula and this deadly animal has already claimed the life of one woman.

The bear apparently stalked a group of campers and the next night, pulled a 65-year-old woman out of her tent, and mauled her to death.

The bear had previously wandered into the area where the victim was camping and left but later returned.

Prior to her death, the woman had several run-ins with the bear. It actually wandered into her area of the campsite a couple of different times.

However, when he came back that next night, everything turned deadly very quickly.

Here’s the full story:


At about 3:30 a.m. the two people in the tent adjacent to the victim were awakened by sounds of the attack. They got out of the tent and sprayed the bear with bear spray. It has not been seen since.

The bear pulled the victim from the tent during the fatal attack.

At some point during the night the bear also got into a chicken coop in town, killing and eating several chickens.

While the initial search for the bear was unsuccessful, FWP wardens and bear specialists are monitoring the area closely. “At this point, our best chance for catching this bear will be culvert traps set in the area near the chicken coop where the bear killed and ate several chickens,” said Randy Arnold, FWP regional supervisor in Missoula.

FWP bear experts believe the bear was an approximately 400-pound male, judging by behavior and footprints. DNA from the bear was collected at the scene of the attack and will be analyzed. Should a bear be caught in a trap, DNA can quickly be compared to the DNA already collected to determine if it is the same animal.

The Powell County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook: “Traps have been set in the area and searching will continue by ground and in the air with the priority of keeping the public safe from another encounter. Campsites in Ovando have been closed until Sunday and we encourage anyone in the area to be cautious and aware that as of now the bear in question has not been located.”



This is absolutely tragic and terrifying.

Obviously, this wild animal is just following his instincts, but we pray that he’s caught soon so no one else is hurt.
