A 3-year-old male grizzly bear was euthanized at the FWP state wildlife lab in Bozeman earlier today.

The bear was captured Monday morning on private land north of Red Lodge after two separate incidentson Thursday, June 20 and Saturday, June 22.

On Thursday, the bear killed one sheep, then returned on Saturday and killed seven more and wounded two others.

Both USDA-Wildlife Services and FWP investigated the incidents and found the bear had been within the confines of corrals and in close proximity to buildings.

This was the third time this bear had been captured. It was captured and moved in both 2011 and 2012 along with his mother and sibling along the south fork of the Shoshone River in Wyoming.

The bear was in overall good condition for his age and the time of year. It weighed 200 lbs.
