Apple-eating grizzly trapped and relocated

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wildlife managers in Wyoming have trapped and relocated an adult male grizzly bear that has shown a fondness for apples.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department trapped the bear in the southern part of Jackson Hole and moved it last Friday just east of Yellowstone National Park in the North Fork of the Shoshone River drainage.

Officials say this is the second time the same bear has been trapped and moved.

Last October it exhibited similar behavior and was moved to the Teton Wilderness after damaging fruit trees and bird feeders near Rawlston in northeast Park County.

This time it got into trouble for feeding on apples from trees at a nursery.
