‘Bear Incident’ Causes Complete Shutdown of Foot Traffic in Glacier Bay National Park’s West Arm

Published Wednesday 3 August 2022

Glacier Bay National Park is closing down the Scidmore Cut area for the remainder of August 2022 to avoid any further bear incidents. On July 30, a coastal brown bear sought out and obtained food from campers in the park’s Scidmore Cut area. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported, but the behavior shows signs of possible habituation for Glacier Bay brown bears. This can be extremely dangerous for visitors to the national park.
