bear trap

Within little over a week, a third grizzly bear has been trapped and relocated in Northwestern Wyoming.  The Wyoming Game and Fish Department relocated an adult male grizzly bear Wednesday for frequenting a ranch near domestic calving operations in the Pat O’ Hara drainage near Cody.  In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the bear was relocated to the Long Creek drainage north of Dubois, approximately five miles from the Teton Wilderness.  The release site is located in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat. Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke points out that Bears can create conflicts after they have obtained food rewards and wildlife officials continue to stress the importance of keeping all attractants including horse feeds, bird seed, and domestic garbage unavailable to bears.  Reducing attractants, he says reduces human-bear conflicts.
