Grizzly Bear Occupancy to Be Discussed This Week

Casper, WY – The state Game and Fish Commission hears a presentation on the proposed grizzly bear management plan this week. The Game and Fish Department analyzed more than 17,000 public comments regarding their grizzly plan. From that they developed five recommendations for the commission. Among those recommendations was to actively discourage grizzly populations in the Wyoming, Salt River and southern Wind River Ranges. The Game and Fish Commission meeting takes place Tuesday and Wednesday in Casper.
