Rattlesnake: There have been reports of bobcat activity in and around the Rattlesnake. No conflicts have been reported and it is most likely that the bobcats are hunting rabbits in the area.

Mountain Lions

There continue to be reports of mountain lion and track sightings throughout the valleys of Region 2. This is not uncommon at this time of the year. Two orphaned mountain lion kittens were captured and taken to the rehab center.

Black Bear

Potomac: FWP had to unfortunately put down the injured black bear that had been seen in the Potomac area due to the extent of its injuries.


Although we do not typically cover wolves in our reports, FWP Region 2 has received reports of wolf activity in the region. Click here for more information on wolf activity and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Park’s wolf program.
