Yellowstone bear sent to zoo

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.
