Grizzly Killed Near Pinedale

Pinedale, WY – A grizzly bear has been killed by a hunter near Pinedale. Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials say a black bear hunter shot and killed a young male grizzly on Monday. It's the first grizzly to be killed this spring in Wyoming. The hunter apparently mistook the grizzly for a black bear. The incident is under investigation. Meanwhile, a black bear that broke into a shed to eat some bird feed was trapped and relocated this week in the Jackson area.
