3-year-old grizzly relocated from Marion area

Posted: Updated:

KALISPELL - Wildlife officials captured and relocated a young grizzly who was seen eating trash and birdseed at nearby rural homes.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the bear was a 3-year-old male, weighing 246 pounds.

A bear specialist captured the bear on April 28, and experts helped fit the bear with a radio collar before moving it to a remote part of the Kootenai National Forest west of Lake Koocanusa.

FWP reminds residents to remove or put away attractants like birdseed and garbage to prevent conflicts with bears.
