MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, WY - The first confirmed grizzly bear sighting in Yellowstone National Park of 2020 occurred on Saturday, March 7. The bear was observed from the air by biologists during a radio telemetry flight near Grand Prismatic Spring just one day before last year’s first sighting.

Male grizzlies come out of hibernation in early March. Females with cubs emerge in April and early May. When bears emerge from hibernation, they look for food and often feed on elk and bison that died over the winter. Sometimes, bears will react aggressively while feeding on carcasses.
