On Grizzly Ground

Episode 2: Dumps

NOTE: This interview was recorded in Yellowstone before flooding closed the park.

On Grizzly Ground expedition continues. This week we’re learning about night shows. Night shows consisted of bleachers stacked around a pile of garbage in Yellowstone National Park. These were the dumps of a century ago. Bears binged on the rancid buffet while tourists watched from the stands.

New episodes from the On Grizzly Ground expedition in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem post every Tuesday through October 2022 in partnership with Toyota and Vista Outdoor.
