MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Montana wildlife officials euthanized a female grizzly bear and relocated two of her three cubs after they broke into structures in the Seeley-Swan Valley to get grain.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the grizzly was killed on Tuesday because it lost its natural foraging habits. Two cubs were taken to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, a wildlife park in West Yellowstone.

A third cub could not be captured because it stopped returning to the trap site. Officials have removed traps from the area.
