You may be wondering shouldn't these bears be in hibernation? Well, that's not always the case. We reached out to Jamie Jonkel with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks who is the bear specialist for the Missoula area.

He said there are still a few grizzlies out and about and some won't den until the last week of December. That's the same for a handful of black bears as well.
