“Home of Brutus the Bear and friends!”
Welcome to Montana Grizzly Encounter; a Grizzly Bear Rescue & Education Sanctuary in Bozeman, Montana. Founded in 2004, it provides a spacious and natural home for rescued grizzlies. At the same time it provides a place where the public can come and learn about grizzly bears as they watch the majestic animals “up close” in a beautiful mountain setting.
First off, dogs are welcome... Great for those of us that travel with dogs! I could have spent hours here... But the kids weren't patient enough to sit and observe long enough. The Bears were lively and seemed happy. Great stop along our way.

The Bears had great personalities and were fun to watch. We'd go again.
Must stop! They have different bears at different times of the day. No food, but definitely a great stopping point for us and our 18 month old during our trip from ND to OR. Seeing Grizzlies running is pretty cool. They seem happy there.
Dogs are allowed! Its a most if you are going to camp in bear country. Learned a lot about bears and how to deal with them. If its black fight back and if its brown lay down
Great adventure. AWSOME staff. Very dog and Kid friendly.
My husband and I loved this place! Bella (3 year old female) was so fun to watch! The employees are so knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely come back on our next trip to Yellowstone!
The staff are very informative, friendly and welcoming. They give you individual attention and answer all your questions. The day we visited Brutus and Bella were out in the viewing area. Bella is very active and seems to be hamming it up for the guest. We were very pleased we made this stop.
It is a great stop! The bears are interesting. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and eager to share.
The entrance fee is good for two days if you are staying in the area and want to come back to see different bears. (they don't all get along so they are let out in sub-groups.)
