Grizzlies are becoming aggressive over their food
Melody, Pops, and her brother are going to their cabin in Glacier National Park. When they get there they are at a campfire and pops is telling a story about when he was 10 and attacked by an animal. Melody thinks the animal was a grizzly bear, but Pops had quills in his legs. It was a porcupine.
One night after at the campfire, Old Slim, a grizzly attacked them. After the attack, Mel, her Aunt Cassie, and Steve, a wildlife scientist, go for a hike to a hotel on the top of a mountain. Melody went into the woods behind the hotel and a grizzly came out of the bushes and chased her. She ran for a tree and climbed it as fast as she could. The branch with her hand fell and so did she.
That bear is a foot away after she fell. Mell heard something else I the bushes. it was a porcupine that had big quills like big metal spears. the porcupine and the bear get in a fight and Mel gets time to escape.
The people learned that teach behind the hotels caused the bears to come. The park cleaned uptake campgrounds and the trash. The Granite Park Clachet Hotel got a huge new incinerator for the trash. The hotel manager was fired. The rangers patrolled the park better. the bear problem went away.
