Citing concerns for human safety, Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials killed one of the offspring of famed grizzly bear ‘399’ near Jackson last week. Grizzly 399 is known for raising multiple litters not far from busy roadways in Grand Teton National Park. Our radio partners report on how one of them got into trouble. Plus, conservationists are enlisting scientists to help manage a historic Colorado homestead and ranch as partial wildlife habitat.
