Montana Grizzly Encounter - Review
Montana Grizzly Encounter is the place to be if you want to see grizzly bears up close. The Encounter looks after the welfare of grizzly bears in a completely natural environment. Currently, there are five grizzly bears under the protection of the organisation. These bears have been rescued from captivity and given a chance to live a better life. Visitors can interact with the bears in their natural environment. It is a great way to learn about the bears and their natural behaviours. The animals enjoy interaction with humans and are not violent, given to the nasty environments from which they were rescued. The organisation has studied the behaviour of the species and offers special tips when interacting with them or while hiking in bear counties.

Montana Grizzly Encounter, Bozeman Reviews
Seeing bears in zoos has always been tough. They are lethargic and often not visible at all. Sometimes they neurotically pace back and forth. My many experiences in zoos left me ill-prepared for this experience. This past Sunday AM we sat and watched Bella (4 y.o. female) run and jump around for over an hour. She tossed sticks in the air, threw logs, and was all around curious and energetic. She acted just like our puppies do...but on a much, much larger scale. The bears are obviously happy and well taken cared of. The education was VERY good and well worth the very reasonable entrance fee.
Absolutely loved this place! Staff was very friendly, funny, and informative. It’s great that they’ve rescued all of their bears. You can tell that the owners put everything they have into this. Can’t wait to come here again.
This place was really cool. I liked the little gift shop and was happy to support a rescue. We went on a cool day, so the two bears that were out were active. There is a lot of information for people who don't know much about bears or bear safety. All around, it's a nice quick stop for a road trip!
Loved seeing the bears up close. They are all happy. Bella is very active and playful. This team has done a great thing building this education center for humans and a rescue for these bears.
Really great little hidden gem close to Bozeman. The staff there are very knowledgeable and I believe that they have a presenter constantly talking in front of the bears so that if you want to learn, they are there to answer questions and also just talk in the background so you can view and listen. Pretty neat! Wheelchair accessible, and very kid friendly! Thanks!
