Wyoming Game and Fish Hosts Q & A

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Given the high-interest in the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s elk feed-grounds management plan public process, the Department is hosting a supplemental question and answer session for those who were unable to attend the first set of public meetings. The session begins at 4:00 pm January 5th with Game and Fish wildlife managers and disease experts, along with federal partners on the basics of Wyoming’s elk feed-grounds. For those wanting to attend the Q&A, prior online enrollment is required, and prospective attendees should watch the recorded meeting in advance. The recorded video features presentations from Game and Fish including an overview of elk feed-grounds in Wyoming, current wildlife disease concerns, including chronic wasting disease, and current brucellosis management on feed-grounds. Presentations also include federal partners on their role in the feeding of elk in western Wyoming. Anyone can submit written comments regarding elk feed-grounds and the public engagement process through January 8th.
