JACKSON, Wyo. — Wyoming game managers have trapped and relocated an adult male grizzly bear because it was damaging property on private land.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says the bear was moved last week.

The bear was captured in the area of the South Fork of the Shoshone River west of Cody and moved to an area southeast of Moran Junction in the Bridger Teton National Forest.
