September 5, 2008
The recovery of wolves and grizzly bears is one of the greatest conservation success stories of all time. It is also one of the most controversial. On Sept. 14, Wyoming Wildlife TV takes an in-depth look at the recovery of these species in Wyoming and the effects they are having on people who live, work, and recreate in bear and wolf country.
This episode will air Sunday, Sept. 14, at 10:30 pm on KCWY, Channel 13.
The show features interviews with bear and wolf experts from various agencies and organizations, as well as outfitters, hunters, ranchers, conservationists and businesspeople who deal with bears and wolves on a regular basis. Viewers will also be treated to spectacular footage of wolves and bears in some of the wildest country anywhere.
"There has been so much controversy and rhetoric surrounding these species, that we wanted to give viewers an accurate look at what it means to have grizzlies and wolves in Wyoming," said Eric Keszler, Public Information Officer for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. "And we wanted to hear it directly from the people who work to manage these species and the people whose lives have been impacted, for better or worse, by the recovery of these species."
Wyoming Wildlife TV is being broadcast through a unique partnership between the Game and Fish Department and KCWY. It airs every Sunday night at 10:30 on KCWY, Channel 13.
The show can be seen in Cheyenne and Casper on channel 13; Laramie on channel 14, Riverton on channel 30, Sheridan on channel 7, Big Piney on channel 6, and Jackson on channel 2.
