Problem Bear Relocated

Grizzly-Bear

Another grizzly bear has been relocated – this time FROM Bridger Teton National Forest to Shoshone National Forest.  The young adult male had injured seven and killed one domestic sheep in the Dutch Joe area southeast of Pinedale, and Wyoming Game and Fish personnel trapped the bear Friday to relocate to an area about 45 miles west of Cody.  Game and Fish Spokesman Eric Keszler says bears are relocated in accordance with federal regulation under the Endangered Species Act.  In this case, the decision to relocate and the selection of the relocation site was made after taking into consideration its age, sex, and the type of conflict in which the bear was involved.  The release site is located within currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.
