CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming game managers have trapped and moved a young grizzly bear that was killing domestic sheep on private land northwest of Thermopolis.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials say they relocated the subadult male bear on Thursday to the Fox Creek drainage of the Clarks Fork River. That’s about 15 miles northwest of Crandall in occupied grizzly bear habitat.

The relocation was done in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Shoshone National Forest to minimize the chance of future conflicts and maximize the survival potential of the bear. Grizzlies are listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act.
