CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A grizzly bear that has been menacing humans in Park County has been removed and killed.

The Cody Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/2e4cRic ) that the 519-pound bear was captured Saturday after previously being relocated in 2004 and 2011 due to prior human encounters.

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks officials estimate the bear was 18 years old.

Park County Commissioner Joe Tilden says the bear was prowling his ranch beginning in late September. The bear ultimately had to be removed after it killed some of Tilden’s animals.
