The bears are attracted by the grain at a farm on the South Fork of the Shoshone River. I wish the story told more.
“The bears either break into a grain shed or crawl into feed bunks where the farmers are feeding calves. The bears haven’t bothered the calves so far, they just like to eat along side them, . . ” from the Jackson Hole Daily.

The latest bear was released in the Absaroka Mountains near Togwotee Pass (on the Continental Divide).

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
