The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has again begun trapping wolves in northwestern Wyoming in their efforts to monitor the population of wolves under the terms of U.S. Fish and Wildlife delisting of animal. Game and Fish Spokesman Ray Hagaman says in the process, trapped wolves are immobilized, processed and then released on-site. Hagaman says trapping will take place in the Absaroka Range north of Dubois and west of Cody, the Wind River Range near Dubois, and the Gros Ventre Range north of Pinedale and east of Bondurant. Trapping will also include the East Fork, Wiggins Fork, Horse Creek, Warm Springs Creek, Geyser Creek, and Little Warm Springs drainages and their tributaries.  The places the trapping is taking place are marked with warning signs and Hagaman emphasizes the public must heed the signs and not venture into the posted areas. Trapping may continue through August 31.
