CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says the second grizzly bear in two years has been spotted near Lander.

The Associated Press reports a hunter photographed a bear May 21 northwest of Lander, and Game and Fish officials verified it is a grizzly bear.

Last year a hunter photographed a grizzly bear June 15 west of Lander in the Sinks Canyon area.

Game and Fish officials are warning residents and visitors to bear country to securely store food and garbage away from sleeping areas. Food and odors attract bears.
