Slowly but surely, grizzly bears are returning to Washington state, and The Vital Ground Foundation is already lending a helping hand.
On June 29, a multi-agency team of wildlife biologists captured and radio-collared a young male bear in the Selkirk Mountains of northeast Washington. The event, which occurred near Sullivan Lake in Pend Oreille County, marked the state’s first grizzly capture in more than 30 years, according to a recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service briefing.Big Sheep Creek
