Fish and Game officers had discovered the bear dead on April 9, 2021 at Little Warm River in Fremont County. The grizzly had been tagged and wore a radio collar so researchers could gather data about it. When the bear died, the collar sent a signal of mortality.

Investigators found multiple bullets in the bear’s body, prompting further investigation. Additionally, a dead cub was found in the bear den, which was likely dead after the mother failed to return.
