You Don’t Need To Leave Great Falls To See Big Or Small Wildlife

If you are into wildlife viewing adventures you might want to schedule a trip to Yellowstone National Park or to Glacier National Park. A quick trip to Zoo Montana has many animals you can see in Billings. Read Tammie Toren's story here:
If travel is not part of your plans- there is a lot of wild life in and around Great Falls. I am not referring to the bar scene, although that could be a different story I might write down the road.
The parks in Great Falls are full of squirrels, bunnies and other feathered friends and fowl. All it takes is a few moments of looking around and you will see all that we have in Great Falls.
Domesticated wild fowl and wild geese can be seen near Gibson Park year around.
If you are looking for something a little larger- Great Falls has had more than one moose within the city boundaries. There was a young bull moose a few years back that visited Valley View Elementary before being escorted out of town by the Fish and Game. I saw it as it was headed up Stuckey Road going north.
Pat Frisch took a picture of this moose as it was being relocated. This is a different moose that was in town looking for.....who knows?
Moose on the Loose Captured by Fish Wildlife and Parks
The moose had been tranquilized and was being loaded into a trailer. It was taken to the Highwood Mountains where it was released.
