While the new regulation is intended to make the park more pet friendly, Montana State Parks would like to remind pet owners to please be considerate of other park visitors and wildlife. Owners of aggressive dogs or dogs that chase wildlife should be kept on a leash at all times.

Montana State Unit Study – 3 Boys and a Dog


African wild dogs are one of the predators being researched by Montana State University professor Scott Creel and the MSU-affiliated Zambian Carnivore Programme. Evidence suggests this evolutionarily unique species is one of the most social mammals on Earth, with behaviors that make it the mammalian equivalent of honeybees. BOZEMAN – Scott Creel and the Montana State University-affiliated Zambian Carnivore Programme are continuing their long effort to raise the profile of key predators in Africa, particularly African wild dogs, a little-studied and unique predator.Montana State University researchers hope a scent detection dog named Knapweed Nightmare can aid in the early detection of noxious weeds.
