The campground at Russell Gates Fishing Access Site along the Blackfoot River is open again after Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials removed a black bear that posed a human safety risk early Wednesday morning. The bear, a 3 or 4-year-old female, weighing about 150 pounds was without young, according to FWP bear management specialist, Jamie Jonkel. “This bear had received food rewards in the past and learned that humans posed no threat, which made this a dangerous situation,” said Jonkel.  “There are a lot of berries in this area, which means there will be more bears, and we really need people to keep their foods contained.”
