Fort Worth-based BNSF proposes plan to reduce number of bears killed in Montana

Fort Worth-based BNSF Railway has proposed a plan to reduce the number of grizzly bears killed by its trains in Montana.

In 2019, BNSF trains killed eight grizzlies. That year, one of its locomotives killed a cow and that carcass attracted grizzlies. Two of them died in train collisions and three others were killed by traffic on a highway near the tracks.
