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.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
