GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Grand Teton National Park officials killed a 4-year-old black bear after searching for it since June 21st.

Officials say the black bear approached three different groups of people, destroyed a tent and walked on a person's porch.

The bear was trapped on Tuesday.

Rangers and biologists determined the same bear was involved in each interaction based on photos and direct observations.

Officials say the bear was habituated to humans and food-storage violations were not associated with these incidents.
