RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada wildlife officials have released a female bear after she was captured near a highway in Reno.

KTVN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2eksEcY ) that the state Department of Wildlife caught the bear Saturday near Interstate 580, where biologists believe she was finding human food sources.

Human-bear conflict specialist Heather Reich says the bear was getting into some trash, bird feeders and fruit trees. Reich says the area makes a poor bear habitat.

The bear was released in the Mt. Rose Foothills Monday afternoon. Before release, she was microchipped and fitted with a satellite tracking collar.
