Hunters shot and killed a grizzly bear in Grand Teton National Park.

The park says that members of an elk hunting party opened fire on the adult male animal Thursday when it reportedly charged them. None of the three hunters was hurt.

The weekend's weather forecast calls for a skiff of snow by Sunday.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is reminding hunters that general and some limited-quota elk licenses will remain on sale through next January.

A recent poll conducted by the University of Wyoming, and reported by the Billings Gazette, shows Wyomingites in the northeastern corner of the state are the most dissatisfied with the reintroduction of wolves into the state.

Earlier this week, Sheridan Media News reported the Sheridan County Commissioners approved two grants for reclamation of areas affected by wildfires earlier this year.

Today marks “Black Friday,” and for Sheridan, that means the 17th annual Christmas Stroll downtown. Judy Taylor is serving on the committee again this year, as she has since the local tradition began.

There's still time this morning to get down to the Kendrick Park Bandshell and participate in the annual Volunteers of America Turkey Trot. Aside from doing preemptive damage control for the inevitable Thanksgiving binge, the event benefits the community's homeless shelter.
