JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped and relocated a sub-adult male grizzly bear that had killed livestock west of Thermopolis.

The agency says the bear was captured May 19 and taken to the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, where it was released about three miles south of the Yellowstone National Park.

The release site is located in currently occupied grizzly bear habitat.
