Our bear resistant cans are built by a family-owned business in Red Lodge, Montana. which is located just over the Beartooth Pass from the northeast gate of Yellowstone National Park. Our cans were first built for our town which has had a nuisance bear problem. Since then we have provided them to areas in Whitefish and Missoula, Montana, Bayfield Wisconsin, as well as for Yellowstone National Park.
In order for a bear can to be determined “bear resistant” it must be officially tested by the Living with Wildlife Foundation in one of two designated sites in the country.
