WG&F starts wolf trapping
Gros Ventre wolves targeted for monitoring
by Wyoming Game and Fish Department
May 10, 2013

As part of ongoing efforts to monitor the population of gray wolves in northwest Wyoming, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will conduct scientific trapping operations in the Gros Ventre mountain range southeast of Jackson. Trapping will begin May 14, 2013 and may continue through June 15, 2013.

All major access points where trapping is being conducted for monitoring purposes will be marked with warning signs. It is critical that members of the public heed these signs and do not venture into posted areas.

Monitoring the number, distribution, and other activities of gray wolves is vital to the ongoing recovery of gray wolves in the Yellowstone ecosystem and is required under the terms of delisting. Trapped animals are immobilized, processed, released on-site, and monitored in accordance with standard wolf capture and handling techniques.

For more information regarding gray wolf trapping efforts, call the Game and Fish Cody regional office at 307-527-7125 or your local Game and Fish biologist or game warden.
