Bear Relocations Up In Wyoming

bear trap

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has again trapped and relocated a sub-adult female grizzly bear, releasing it in the Arizona Creek drainage in the Bridger-Teton National Forest Sunday. Game and Fish bear managers say the bear had been killing cattle on a private ranch in the South Fork of the Shoshone River drainage southwest of Cody. The action was taken cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, selecting the release site as it is in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat and after taking into consideration the age, sex, and type of conflict the bear was involved in.  Large Carnivore Manager Mark Bruscino says this marks the 33rd relocation of a grizzly bear in Wyoming this year which is a little higher than average – probably because of the expanding population.  Bruscino adds, however that the season is ending and the conflicts are gradually tapering off.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
