Male Grizzly Bear Relocated After Killing Cow

Bear was relocated to the South Fork of the Flathead River

A male grizzly bear was relocated from the Blackfoot Valley to the South Fork of the Flathead River drainage this week after killing a young cow north of Ovando.

The USDA Wildlife Services and state Fish, Wildlife and Parks employees captured an adult male and female grizzly on Tuesday near the site where the cow was killed.

Biologists determined the female grizzly was not involved in the depredation just north of the Blackfoot-Clearwater Wildlife Management Area and that bear was released nearby.
