In Montana, they are looking for a conflict manager to work with bears: they promise a six-figure salary
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a government agency that manages wildlife habitats, is currently looking for a "grizzly bear conflict manager" in Montana, reports INSIDER.
Rather than intervene in territorial disputes between bears, they will work with local wildlife agencies to manage bear populations and mitigate their contact with humans.
According to the announcement, the successful candidate will be paid between $79 and $363 per year and must be located within 103 miles of Missoula, Bozeman, or Kalispell in Montana, USA.
In return, the service expects physical work from the candidate.

The candidate will divide their time between camping in the field and an "adequately lit, heated and ventilated" office. It is expected to use a variety of modes of transport to navigate difficult terrain, including on foot, snowmobiles, boats and small planes. He will also oversee a small team.
“A current employee may be exposed to a large number of insect stings and may need to work in close proximity to large animals such as bear and elk,” the announcement reads.
The candidate may also need a firearm for protection, the post says.
The deadline for applications is March 8, 2022. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and have "significant experience in dealing with grizzly bears," as described.
Bear attacks remain relatively rare, but may become more frequent due to human expansion into remote regions of the US and Canada and the effects of climate change.
