DRIGGS, Idaho (AP) -- A 3-year-old female grizzly bear was trapped and euthanized after being caught raiding garbage cans on the Idaho-Wyoming border.

Trappers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Fish and Wildlife Service caught the bear near Driggs on Sunday. It had already been relocated after being caught in apple orchards in Wyoming.

Officials say the bear was habituated to human food and no longer afraid of people.
