Wyoming’s Mule Deer Need Your Help
The Wyoming Game and Fish released a reminder to slow down on the highways and watch for poachers on Wyoming’s winter ranges this winter in hopes of protecting wildlife and especially the mule deer herd in southwest Wyoming. Every year hundreds of big game animals get hit on Wyoming’s highways and winter is the most prominent time for vehicle collisions because of the increased density of animals on the low elevation winter ranges. Slowing down even 5 mph is enough to make a difference in vehicle collisions and increases the duration of your reaction time to slow down.
Game and Fish is asking to be on the lookout for suspicious activity around wildlife like harassment and poaching. Big bucks are more visible now more than any other time of the year due to the winter range being around highways and developed areas. As always, informants are anonymous and cash rewards are offered if convictions are made.
