RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is reopening the upper loop of Prior Flat Campground in the Shirley Mountains. The area was closed last weekend because of concerns about a black bear in the area.

A bear had been getting into garbage cans at the campground, about 30 miles northwest of Medicine Bow. Workers with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department had tried to trap the bear.

Tim Novotny is assistant field manager at the BLM office in Rawlins. He says it appears the danger has passed. A hunter recently killed a bear in the area and officials believe it was the one that had been raiding the campground.
