Grizzly Bear Hair Trapping

In the same paper I read the above article in they published an article about collecting grizzly bear hair that featured some of my favorite people. The article was about collecting grizzly bear hair for DNA analysis.

I spent 5 seasons as a bear trapper and collecting hair really is a lot less stress on grizzly bears than the capture of a bear in a trap…those were interesting events but if the goal is to track the movements of grizzly bears from one area to another I would definitley choose hair sampling over trapping.
