JACKSON, Wyo. — A wintering herd of Bull elk was spotted this morning, Feb. 27 near Spring Gulch Road. One appeared to have fencing stuck to his antlers.
Following an incident in 2019 when an elk was tangled in a rope on a property near Jackson, Wyoming Game and Fish reminded the community about human impacts on wildlife. “While this situation ended well, it serves as another reminder that we constantly have wild animals moving about our valley and we need to do our best to minimize conflict with them. This means everything from cleaning up any unnecessary items an animal may get tangled in, to keeping our pets under strict control, to driving slowly on our roadways and so on. We generally do a good job of co-existing with wildlife, but we can always do better with a little mindfulness,” said the press release.
