CODY, Wyoming — Wildlife officials have trapped and relocated a grizzly bear in an area north of Pinedale where another bear was killing cattle.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says the sub-adult male grizzly was trapped Saturday and relocated to the Five Mile Creek drainage about 5 miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

Game and Fish officials say they sometimes relocate bears in an effort to minimize conflicts with livestock and people.
