Laramie, WY – Authorities have trapped and relocated a grizzly bear in northwestern Wyoming. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department said Tuesday that an adult female grizzly was moved Saturday to the Boone Creek drainage in the Caribou Targhee National Forest. That's about 25 miles northwest of Moran. The department says the bear was moved because it was a frequent visitor to the landfill in Clark.
