ATHOL, Idaho (AP) - Wildlife officials in northern Idaho have trapped and relocated a young grizzly bear that was reportedly raiding chicken coops and damaging sprinkler heads near the small town of Athol. Idaho Department of Fish and Game regional conservation officer Craig Walker told the Coeur d'Alene Press that the bear was seen roaming for five days between Chilco and Athol before it was trapped and relocated on Thursday. Area resident Rick Emry says neighbors are glad the bear is now out of everyone's hair.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Authorities in southwestern Idaho say a 34-year-old Boise man is facing a felony charge after leaving a 3-year-old girl in a locked vehicle on a hot day. Online records show that Christopher Leis on Friday was being held in the Ada County Jail on a charge of injury to a child.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Boise State University has received approval to use eminent domain to acquire properties where school officials want to build a baseball stadium. Documents from the Idaho State Board of Education show the school has tentatively agreed to buy land where an eight-unit apartment complex is located, but it has been unsuccessful in negotiating the purchases of two other parcels it needs to acquire for the stadium. Eminent domain allows the government to take private property with compensation.
