Wildlife Frequent Residential Neighborhoods

Yard Moose (Small)

Wyoming Game and Fish officials are asking residents in the Jackson and Wilson areas to be aware of and show patience with moose and other wildlife that often show up in residential areas during the winter months.  Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says the local office has received numerous calls from concerned citizens about moose in residential areas, prompting them to offer advice on how to avoid problems with these large animals. Gocke says people need to be aware that moose can be out there when they are letting the pets out or taking them for a walk in the mornings when it is still dark.  He says sometimes when people go out with their pets or jogging, they can have music on their i-pods or the dog is unleashed ahead of them.  That’s when he says people run into a problem and a conflict. Gocke says this winter has been a bit more problematic due to the amount of snow the area has received. But despite the snow and the subsequent search for food, residents are reminded that there is a ban on the feeding of wildlife in the town of Jackson and throughout Teton County.
