CODY, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says the grizzly bear problem around Clark will continue to get worse if residents' garbage isn't strictly controlled.

The Associated Press reports that Dusty Lasseter of the game department urged Park County commissioners on Tuesday to create a centralized spot for Clark's garbage.

Lasseter says storing the trash in secure containers would help control the bear problem. He says it also would help the department deal with bears all in one location.
