Laramie, WY – A young grizzly bear that entered one tent, damaged another and bit a generator at a Yellowstone National Park campground has been captured and sent to a Montana zoo. Park officials say the 185-pound male bear wasn't a good candidate for relocation in the wild, so he was taken to the Billings, Mont., zoo. Park spokesman Al Nash says workers tried hazing the bear, but he wouldn't stay away. A young female bear has frequented the same campground but didn't do any damage.
Casper, Wy – Former Minerals Management Service Director Johnnie Burton says in the five years she oversaw the agency there were never relaxed rules to make things less safe for off shore oil wells. Speaking for the first time about the B-P oil spill, Burton told the Casper Star Tribune that she was unaware of any lax enforcement or inadequate oil spill response plans. She said that offshore drilling had been occurring for 50 years with few problems until the B-P incident. Burton oversaw the agency for five years until 2007. She currently works for U-S Representative Cynthia Lummis.
