Cody -

This morning, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department confirmed the presence of a grizzly bear on the northwest side of Cody in a residential area near Sulfur Creek.

A trail camera set in the area confirmed a grizzly bear near the Sulfur Creek drainage had been in a yard eating apples.

Trapping operations are currently underway and it is critical that the public stay away from the area so capture operations are not hindered.

If you observe a bear or bear activity in a residential area, please contact local Game and Fish personnel immediately.  Those living or recreating in the area are advised to be bear aware and use techniques to avoid surprise encounters with bears.
