WG&F begins wolf trapping, monitoring

As part of ongoing efforts to monitor the population of gray wolves in Wyoming, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will conduct capture operations in areas of northwest Wyoming beginning this spring and continuing through fall.

All areas where trapping is being conducted will have major access points marked with warning signs, as well as warning and/or area closure signs in the direct vicinity of trap sites. It is critical that all members of the public heed these signs. When captured, animals are immobilized, processed, released on site and monitored.

The annual monitoring of the gray wolf population is vital to the ongoing management of wolves in Wyoming. Information obtained through these efforts is directly used to assess the status of the wolf population in Wyoming and provides necessary data for directing wolf management activities.

For more information regarding wolf trapping efforts, call the Departmentís Pinedale regional office at (307) 367-4353.
