CODY — Two young grizzly bears will have some walking to do if they ever want to snack on dog food or tear into a motorcycle seat again.

After causing such trouble at a home 15 miles southwest of Cody, the 2-year-old littermates soon found themselves in the middle of the Thorofare region, about 100 miles away.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department, working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, trapped the bears and moved them to the Thorofare on Thursday, according to the department.

Located off the southeastern corner of Yellowstone National Park, the Thorofare is one of the most remote places in the continental United States.

On Wednesday, the department moved a young black bear from Teton Village to the Caribou-Targhee National Forest northwest of the Teton Range. Game and Fish officials said that bear had become used to eating from a Dumpster and from bird feeders.
