Jim Cole-Bear Advocate

A front page article of today’s Bozeman Chronicle Today is about the death of grizzly bear advocate, Jim Cole. He wrote 3 books on the grizzly bear one entitled: Grizzly Bears of Montana and Wyoming. I thought the book was excellent. Cole survived 2 grizzly bear maulings and was a friend of Jim Halfpenny, one of the leading wildlife experts of our area…Cole was also admired by Yellowstone National Park bear expert, who has been the park spokesman on bears and is a wildlife biologist who studied grizzly bears in Pelican Creek. Cole was not in our area long (12 years) but he sure left his mark for the bear.

Jim Cole died of natural causes.
