GREAT FALLS -

James and Jessie Czech spotted a couple of grizzly bears near Bynum on Saturday.

Jessie shared the video with KRTV, saying "They were beautiful and crossed the road about 50 yards in front of us. They were close to the town of Bynum about 5 yesterday eve. On the road to the lake about 3 miles off the main road."

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks says that grizzlies historically roamed eastern Montana's prairie, but in the last century diminished to smaller, more mountainous areas of Montana. 

Now as state and federal conservation efforts have greatly improved the bear's numbers, grizzlies are returning home to the prairie.

FWP works with landowners to prevent and mitigate bear-human conflict, like installing electric fencing.

Mike Madel of FWP said, "The real solution is not removing bears, it's implementing prevention."
