Game and Fish moves problem grizzly bear

Jul 24, 2012 - The Associated Press

JACKSON -- The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped a young, female grizzly bear and relocated it away from the Sunlight Basin, northwest of Cody.

Game department crews captured the bear on Saturday and moved it to the Arizona Creek drainage, about 40 miles north of Jackson. The release site is in currently occupied grizzly habitat.

The game department stresses that it's important to keep all food items so they're unavailable to bears to reduce conflicts with people.
