Black Bear Killed for Posing Threat to Visitors at Wyoming National Park

A black bear was killed at Grand Teton National Park when authorities could not find a home for the bear.

The bear had grown accustomed to the people in the area and was caught twice being illegally fed by visitors.

The park’s science and resource chief, Sue Consolo-Murphy, says the 5-year-old mother bear had little fear of people.

Rangers then captured the bear for the threat it could cause to people.

The cubs were sent to Oswald Bear Ranch.

The visitors could be fined up to $5,000 for feeding the bear.
