Wyoming Game and Fish Department relocates female grizzly for getting into garbage


JACKSON, Wyoming — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped and relocated an adult female grizzly bear in the northwest part of the state.

The agency says it decided to move the bear last Monday for getting into unsecured garbage at a private residence southwest of Cody.

The bear was moved to the Boone Creek drainage in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest just south of Yellowstone National Park.
