JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials have trapped and relocated two grizzly bears in northern Wyoming.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department announced Tuesday that an adult male bear that was getting into livestock feed near Meeteetse was trapped Friday and taken to the Boone Creek drainage in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest about 35 miles north of Alta.

On Sunday, a sub-adult male grizzly bear was captured for frequenting developed areas near Thermopolis. It was relocated to the Bailey Creek drainage in Bridger Teton National Forest about 15 miles northwest of Moran.

Wildlife officials say bears can become a problem if they become habituated to human or livestock food.
