Growing numbers of grizzly bears killing more Montana livestock this year than in all 2014

HELENA, Mon. — Growing numbers of grizzly bears venturing east from the Rocky Mountains are attacking more domestic cattle and sheep.

Montana’s livestock-loss program has reimbursed ranchers for 42 animals killed by grizzlies so far this year — eight more than in all of 2014, not counting the 22 cattle lost this year to bears that have not yet been claimed.
