JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A grizzly bear that was removed from a residential area near Jackson late last week was the same one that caused a temporary road closure in Grand Teton National Park last month.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials trapped grizzly No. 760 on Friday after it had spent several days hanging around the Aspens subdivision. The bear was released about 5 miles east of the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park.

Regional wildlife supervisor Tim Fuchs tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide (https://bit.ly/1ttulbM ) that the grizzly hadn’t caused any major problems and was moved as a precaution.

Grand Teton spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs says No. 760 was brought up in the park and has a relative ease around people. It was foraging on berries in the Moose-Wilson Road area in mid-September, leading to the road closure.
