The Wyoming Game & Fish Department has announced plans for pre-baiting and scientific trapping of bears in the Blackrock/Spread Creek area near Moran Junction of the Bridger Teton National Forest between June 11th and July 20th. A second trapping effort will take place in the Upper Gros Ventre area later this summer.  To attract bears, biologists utilize natural food sources such as fresh road-killed deer and elk to capture grizzly bears with foot snares and/or culvert traps. Trapped animals are then immobilized, processed, released on site, and monitored in accordance with the protocols developed jointly by the state and the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team. Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says all the areas where trapping is being conducted will have major access points marked with warning signs and it is critical that the public heeds these signs.  Gocke explains that Monitoring of grizzly bear distribution and other activities are vital to the ongoing recovery of grizzlies in the Yellowstone Ecosystem.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
