The new rules to reduce human-bear encounters were laid out Tuesday before a meeting of the Fremont County Commission.

Wyoming Public Radio's Aaron Alpern reports on where Brimmer's ruling now stands.

Wyoming – After months and years of heated debate, Wyoming has a plan for managing wolves, if and when they come off the endangered species list.
