Grand Teton closes road to protect hungry bear

Grand Teton National Park has announced a partial road closure to protect a grizzly bear eating berries on the side of the road.

Park officials closed the northern end of Moose-Wilson Road, between the Murie Ranch Junction and the Death Canyon Junction, Friday.

Park officials say the closure is expected to go through the weekend.

The unpaved section of the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park will be temporarily closed for routine dust abatement beginning 4 a.m. through midafternoon on Tuesday.

If the northern section of the road remains closed due to bear activity during this time, there will be no access to the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve and the Death Canyon Trailhead Tuesday morning through midafternoon.

Officials say they have plans to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary.
