Grizzly Relocated after killing Cattle
Written by jordanmckamey on July 24, 2019
At the direction of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department captured and relocated a sub-adult male grizzly bear on July 21, 2019.
The bear was captured for killing cattle on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment north of Pinedale, WY. In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Shoshone National Forest, the bear was relocated to the Clocktower Creek drainage approximately seven miles west of Wapiti, WY.
Bears are relocated in accordance with state and federal law and regulation. Game and Fish continues to stress the importance of the public’s responsibility in bear management and the importance of keeping all attractants (food items, garbage, horse feed, bird seed and others) unavailable to bears. Reducing attractants available to bears reduces human-bear conflicts. For more information on grizzly bear management and reducing the potential for conflicts please visit the Bear Wise Wyoming page.
