Wyoming man fined $25,000 for shooting grizzly bear last year

    A 38-year-old Wyoming man has been fined $25,000 after killing a sow grizzly bear in 2017.

    According to the Cody Enterprise, Casper resident Brent Stalkup was ordered to pay the fine during a court appearance after pleading guilty to killing the bear.

    The incident occurred in Park County in October 2017 while Stalkup was elk hunting.


    Stalkup told the Wyoming Game and Fish he shot the bear after it had approached his hunting camp three separate times.

    After an investigation, only one set of bear tracks were found outside of the camp. It was determined that this was not a case of self-defense.

    Stalkup is also prohibited from hunting, fishing, or trapping for on year starting January 1st, 2019.
