An adult female grizzly bear was brutally killed in the Yaak Valley in late November 2020. The killer or killers shot the bear, partially skinned and mutilated her before dumping the body in a driveway. At present, it is unknown if she had cubs. A reward fund up to $50,000 plans to be added to the already-existing state reward fund for help leading to a conviction. Please donate what you can afford. Your donation will be held in a separate YVFC reward account. It will not be spent on general YVFC operations. If you have information regarding this killing, call the state at: 1-800-TIP-MONT
