Game and Fish Relocate Grizzly Bear
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped and relocated a young male grizzly bear that was damaging apple trees and hanging around a residence in Wapiti.
The game department trapped the bear on Wednesday. It was released in the Blackrock Creek drainage on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, about 37 miles northeast of Jackson. The site is in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.
The game department reminds people that it’s important to keep food items including horse feeds and bird seed out of reach of bears to reduce conflicts with people.
