A Wyoming Game and Fish employee did everything right after mistaking a grizzly bear for a black bear during a 2013 hunting trip: he immediately notified authorities and fully cooperated with their investigation.

But Luke Ellsbury’s mistakes — killing a grizzly bear and firing at it from a spot too close to the North Fork Highway — resulted in more than $10,000 in financial penalties last week. The sentence was roughly in line with similar instances in Park County in recent years.

A Powell day care provider and her husband have been charged with child endangerment for allegedly keeping methamphetamine in the same home where the woman watched other people’s children.
