A sow grizzly and her yearling cub were moved to the Five Mile Creek drainage on the North Fork by Game and Fish on Sept. 2.

The bears were captured for livestock depredation on a U.S. Forest Service grazing allotment north of Pinedale. In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Shoshone National Forest, the bear was relocated to the drainage roughly five miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

Bears that are considered a threat to human safety are not relocated.

Maybe they could relocate some of these bears to Colorado or California? New York perhaps...just a thought.


I think they should relocate people. Problem solved.

IN or bust

If they just ate californians that would be ok with me

Sounds like you should be relocated to California with the rest of the tree huggers like you. Put the bears in your back yard then.

Another bear moved to Cody. I think there are enough bears in the area that they can start taking them some where else. What's it going to take for them to get the idea to take them some where else some one getting killed by one of the relocated bears?

Move the bears to the reservations since they want them so bad and to California for the tree huggers.
