Grizzly Relocated from South Fork

Written by on April 30, 2018

A problem bear on the South Fork found a new home away from people last week.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped and relocated a sub-adult male grizzly bear April 24th, after it had been reportedly frequenting residential areas and livestock calving pastures on private lands on the South Fork west of Cody.
The bear was relocated to the Bear Creek drainage about 10 miles northeast of Dubois, which is located in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.
Game and Fish staff say that bears are relocated in accordance with state and federal law and regulation, but continue to stress the importance of the public’s responsibility in bear management and the importance of keeping all attractants unavailable to bears. Reducing attractants reduces human-bear conflicts.
