Montana ranch hand fined for chasing grizzly bear in truck

A Montana ranch hand has been fined after authorities say he posted a video on social media of him chasing a grizzly bear in a pickup truck. The Helena Independent Record newspaper reports that Lawrence Kennedy of Browning was fined $400 after reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. Kennedy initially pleaded not guilty to violating the Endangered Species Act but switched his plea under the deal July 5. He was charged with unlawfully harassing a threatened species. link
