Two young grizzly bears spotted Tuesday evening near Floweree between Great Falls and Fort Benton probably are the first grizzlies in several decades to make it to the Missouri River, where the bears historically lived, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.

Diane Walker, who ranches near Floweree, witnessed the groundbreaking grizzlies.

"They just stopped and looked at us," said Walker, who was with family when she saw the bears. "They didn't seem to be frightened or anything."

The bears were acting playful with each other, she added.
