Wyoming Game and Fish biologists have begun trapping wolves and grizzly bears near Pinedale in efforts to monitor the respective populations.  Game and Fish is conducting the wolf trapping operations in the northern Wind River Mountains and Gros Ventre Mountains north of Pinedale and east of Bondurant.  Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says monitoring the number, distribution and other activities of gray wolves is vital to the ongoing recovery of gray wolves in the Yellowstone ecosystem and is required under the terms of delisting.  Trapped animals are immobilized, processed, released on site, and monitored in accordance with standard wolf capture and handling techniques. Gocke says all major access points where trapping is being conducted for monitoring purposes will be marked with warning signs.  It is critical that all members of the public heed these signs and not venture into posted areas.  Meanwhile, Gocke says similar trapping and research is being done on grizzly bears north and west of Pinedale. Again, Gocke says the trapping areas are signed and people need to stay away from those areas.
