(DRIGGS) – A grizzly bear that had been terrorizing Teton Valley residents last week has been euthanized. Tyler Andersen has more. Authorities say the bear was killed by trappers from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Sunday. The 3-year-old bear had been tearing through garbage cans and had been spotted in several residential areas and subdivisions. Officials say the bear had become accustomed to eating human food and was no longer afraid of people. The bear had been relocated to Idaho after spending too much time in Wyoming apple orchards last year.
