    Wildlife Warning For Golfers

    The Montana State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising golfers to
    take extra precautions and be on the alert for bears while in the
    Gallatin,
    Helena and Lewis and Clark National Forests golf courses.

    They advise golfers to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells
    on
    their clothing to alert, but not startle the bears unexpectedly.

    They also advise you to carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with
    a
    bear. It is also a good idea to watch for signs of bear activity.

    Golfers should be able to recognize the difference between black bear
    and
    grizzly bear droppings on the golf course. Black bear droppings are
    smaller
    and contain berries and possibly squirrel fur.

    Grizzly bear droppings have bells in them and smell like pepper spray.
