Grizzlies Move into Bozeman

March 11, 2009

Bozeman, MT - Grizzlies are moving into Bozeman Thursday night, as the big bears are featured in the premiere of the new documentary "Grizzly." The filmmakers follow two Yellowstone grizzlies over the course of four years, as well as ranchers, politicians and homeowners in the area who have learned to live with bears near their backyards.

Monica Fella with the Sierra Club in Montana says previous films have portrayed grizzlies in a more wild landscape, free from human contact.

"This portrays the greater Yellowstone ecosystem as a place where humans and wildlife share the landscape, and where they must adapt to the presence of each other."

Fella says the film also shows how grizzlies have to deal with human obstacles and temptations, such as unsecured trash containers and bird feeders. Those can become regular feeding sites and get bears into trouble.

"Bears have enough problems to worry about with climate change and decreasing food sources. On top of that, we add this whole other element of human obstacles."

The Sierra Club funded the documentary, which is narrated by Susan Sarandon.
