The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped and relocated a sub-adult male grizzly bear and an adult female grizzly bear Friday, according to a department news release.
The male bear was captured after damaging stored crops and visiting a private ranch southwest of Cody, Wyo. The adult female bear was captured for hanging around developed areas in the same location.
The female bear was relocated to the Mormon Creek drainage on the North Fork of the Shoshone River west of Cody, about 5 miles from the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The male bear was moved to the Fox Creek drainage on the Shoshone National Forest about 14 miles northwest of Crandall.
