Grizzly bear Felicia and her cubs near Wyoming highway could be euthanized: FWS

A grizzly bear mother and her two cubs are at risk of relocating or even dying after taking up residence near a Wyoming highway.

Bear, known as “Felicia” to Jackson Hole residents, poses threat, wildlife officials say due to family’s proximity to 55-mile highway in Togwotee Mountain Pass .

People have also been seen approaching and feeding the bears.

“Human conditioned behavior,” the US Fish and Wildlife Service said in a press release, could lead to aggressive behavior in bears.

If park rangers are unable to scare the bear away using rubber bullets or loud noises over the next 10-14 days, the US Fish and Wildlife Service says Felicia and her cubs will be probably displaced or euthanized.
