Wyoming Relocates Two Bears In Three Days

Wyoming Game & Fish Department, Bear Hunting Magazine

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped and relocated two grizzly bears over three days. The first, an adult female grizzly, had been hanging around a guest house west of Dubois and was captured on Friday after it damaged an outbuilding that had stored horse grain. It was released on Friday in the Fishhawk Creek drainage, about 46 miles west of Cody.

The second female grizzly was captured on Sunday for killing cattle on a ranch in the South Fork of the Shoshone River drainage southwest of Cody. This sow was moved to the Arizona Creek drainage in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, four miles south of Yellowstone National Park.
