Grizzly Bear Euthanized After Twice Killing Cattle

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — State wildlife officials have euthanized a young grizzly bear that killed cattle in the Red Lodge twice in the past year.

The 2½-year-old grizzly bear was captured Friday morning, a day after a dead calf was found near a county road northeast of Red Lodge.

It was the same bear that was captured in October 2011 in relation to other cattle depredations in the Red Lodge area and relocated to the Gallatin National Forest.

Because the bear was involved in two incidents of livestock depredation and had been relocated once, officials with the state Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services determined the bear was not suitable for a second relocation.

The bear was euthanized Friday afternoon at the state wildlife lab in Bozeman.
