Wildlife agents killed a female black bear in Sheridan early Friday after the bear went on a food raid in town for the second time in two years. The bear, thought to be about 6 years old, was cornered at about 9:45 a.m., up a tree in a residential yard near Edwards Drive, according to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
After wardens saw that it had an ear tag, indicating that it had previously been caught and released, they decided to kill it. Records revealed that the same bear had been caught in Sheridan on June 9, 2021.
