Bozeman non-profit works to offer discounted bear spray
A nonprofit organization based in Bozeman is teaming with seven retailers around Yellowstone National Park to sell bear spray at discounted prices during the week of July 4.
Keystone Conservation also plans to distribute bear safety information.
Keystone Conservation's program coordinator Elisa Prescott says the "Keep Calm and Carry Bear Spray" campaign is part of an effort to increase awareness of the importance of carrying bear spray.
Bear spray usually costs about $45.
With the discount, some retailers are offering bear spray for $10 off.
