May Bears is a collection of 999 different bears, forming a virtuous community. In the summer of 2009 Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks trapped a female grizzly bear for research. She was fitted with a collar and released. Little did they know that this grizzly’s story would continue to raise awareness about preventing/minimizing bear human conflicts on the landscape. In the spring of 2009, a pair of grizzly bears were seen gallivanting around Seeley Lake, MT. Spring is breeding season for bears and it was determined that this was a breeding pair. This pair frequented people’s yards, crossed highways during the day and spent time in open valleys. The community started to buzz about these two bears and their antics. The male was nicknamed “Scarhip” due to a large visible scar on his left hip. Scarhip was deemed a bit of a “bad boy”. Frequently exploring sheds and pulling down bird feeders. On one day in the summer of 2009 researchers trapped two grizzlies at close, but separate, trap sites. It was Rainy and Scarhip! It seemed these two were indeed sticking close together. Both grizzlies were fitted with collars and released and went their separate ways for the remainder of the season.
