An adult female grizzly bear who had been given food so often, it was determined to be too comfortable around people was euthanized earlier this week. The bear had been getting into food, garbage and birdseed in the Hebgen Basin and West Yellowstone areas.

With the many years long history of getting into food at homes and at a private campground in the West Yellowstone area, it forced Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials to capture the grizzly at a campground and euthanize it.
