Grizzlies Relocated to Camp Creek
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 22, 2018
Three bears were taken from the Bridger-Teton National Forest last week and brought to Camp Creek northwest of Cody in an effort to mitigate the potential for conflicts with humans.
At the direction of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department captured and relocated a subadult female grizzly bear, as well as an adult female and her cub on October 16th. The bears were captured as part of a preemptive effort to reduce the potential for conflicts due to their proximity and behavior around human activities and outfitter camps in the Upper Green River Drainage on the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
The grizzlies, along with a non-target subadult female grizzly bear from the South Fork area southwest of Cody, were relocated to the Camp creek drainage about 31 miles Northwest of Cody.
