The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has trapped and relocated a two-year old male grizzly bear near Cody and moved it to a site in Teton County. Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says the bear was captured Friday because it was frequenting ranch housing areas and damaging stored crops in Park County southwest of Cody. The bear was relocated to approximately 37 miles northeast of Jackson in the Blackrock Creek drainage on the Bridger-Teton National Forest in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.   Gocke says Game and Fish also trapped and relocated a second sub-adult male grizzly bear Friday. That bear was captured because it was frequenting ranch housing areas west of Cody. It was relocated to the Falls River drainage on the Targhee National Forest approximately 7 miles south of Yellowstone National Park. Gocke explains the decisions where to relocate the bears were made taking into consideration the age, sex, and type of conflict the bears were involved in.
