CODY, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped an adult male grizzly bear north of Pinedale.
The department says it captured the bear on Wednesday because it was killing cattle on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment.
The bear was relocated to the Mormon Creek drainage, approximately five miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The release site was within the North Fork of the Shoshone River drainage, west of Cody, and is currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.
The game department stresses that it's important to keep food and other items that could attract bears out of their reach.
