As part of ongoing efforts to monitor the population of grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will conduct grizzly bear capture operations in areas of northwestern Wyoming beginning this spring and continuing through early fall. Department biologists will conduct grizzly bear trapping operations in both front and backcountry areas.
All areas where trapping is conducted will have major access points marked with warning signs. All trap sites will be posted with area closure signs in the direct vicinity of trap sites. It is critical that all members of the public heed these signs.

When captured, animals are collared, released on site, and monitored in accordance with strict guidelines developed jointly by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team.
