Lander, WY (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is warning people to stay away from areas where grizzly bears are being captured for studies.

The department says the studies are part of an effort to monitor grizzly bears in the greater Yellowstone area through this fall.

Officials say all areas where trapping is being conducted will have warning signs.

The department says the monitoring is needed to keep track of the bears and study their health and habits to protect them.
