Efforts to spread Christmas cheer by trimming the vegetation around one’s home may be anything but cheery for local wildlife. Here in Jackson Hole, we typically share the neighborhoods with wildlife who Wyoming Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says can find themselves entangled in what at first looked like a pretty good idea. Gocke says every year the game and fish department hears of animals who get tangled in swingsets, Christmas lights and even sleds. He says the experience is not only stressful for the animals, but they can even die. Gocke says if you live in a neighborhood where wildlife frequently come through your yard, you may even want to think twice about putting out decorations for the holidays. At the same time, Gocke says youngsters who will soon have more free time on their hands need to be wary of the critters brought into the urban areas by the winter weather and can become aggressive and dangerous.
