JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife managers in Wyoming have euthanized a young male grizzly bear that became habituated to humans.

The bear had been a favorite of Jackson Hole wildlife photographers for the past two years.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department large carnivore supervisor Dan Thompson says people near the small town of Clark, which is north of Cody, had seen the bear in their yards.

Thompson says the grizzly had not gotten into trouble in Clark, but was all too comfortable around people and seemed to seek out houses and other structures.

Thompson says wildlife managers had twice relocated the bear before in an attempt to keep it away from developed areas.

He tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (https://bit.ly/1DMUsKo ) that all options for keeping the bear alive were exhausted.
