Hunting Season

The general hunting season starts Oct. 22, this Sunday, and it "should bring a bumper crop of nice bucks and bulls", according to Jim Williams, Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks wildlife manager. If you are planning a late season visit to the park, you don't have to wear bright orange clothing. Hunting is not permitted inside the park and Glacier National Park reminds hunters it is illegal to transport game through the Park except along U.S. Highway 2 (lawfully taken and tagged game only). All other roads are off limits.

Lost dog (Polebridge area)

Not just any dog, but a Border Patrol dog got lost in the woods earlier this week. Eddie, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection “K-9” pooch, was on patrol when he was reported missing. Eddie was last was seen in the Trail Creek area, near the Canadian border on the western edge of Glacier National Park. This is a wilderness area where grizzly bears and mountain lions roam.

Eddie is a black and tan German shepard that weighs approx. 70 pounds. A "?” is tattooed inside his right ear. If you find Eddie, U.S. Customs and Border Protection would like its canine cop back; call (406) 862-2561.
