Where do the Bears go in the Winter?

Many people wonder where all the bears at Yellowstone Bear World go in the winter.

Winter - sleepy time for the bears

The answer is that they all stay right here! Throughout the park there are dens that are set up year round that the bears sleep in. When winter begins to set in the bears gradually disappear into their dens. Some of the bears like to sleep alone, and other like to sleep with their friends. The dens are covered with logs and branches on the top to insulate the area and keep it warm, and then as the snow comes down, it provides more insulation to keep the cold out and the bears warm. So we don’t take the bears anywhere, they stay right at home, nice and cozy all winter long.
