Game & Fish Kills Grizzly

Cody, WY – Wyoming Game and Fish Department wildlife biologists had to shoot and kill a five year old grizzly bear near Cody recently. Officials say the 400 pound male had broken windows and repeated damaged buildings along the upper fork of the Clarks Fork River. Biologists tried to catch the bear several times, but he always slipped away after they set up bear traps. The grizzly was the first euthanized this year for repeatedly raiding buildings.
