Bear Killed by Grand Teton Officials After Multiple Reports
GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Grand Teton National Park officials have killed a 4-year-old black bear after it approached three different groups of people, destroyed a tent and walked on a person's porch.
Officials began looking for the bear on June 21 and trapped it on Tuesday.
Rangers and biologists determined the same bear was involved in each interaction based on photos and direct observations.
Officials say the bear was habituated to humans. Food-storage violations are not associated with these incidents.
No one was injured by the bear.
