The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has captured and relocated a male grizzly bear that raided a hunting camp.

State officials say the 7-year-old, 330-pound bear was captured on Friday after it repeatedly raided an outfitter camp in the Pacific Creek area looking for food.

Mike Boyce is a bear management specialist with the game department. He says the bear had been hanging around the camp since it succeeded in getting into a horse trailer earlier this month where it ate about 50 pounds of horse pellets. Boyce says he planned to release the bear in a remote location in the Cody area.
