  • In Jackson Hole, commissioners peer into wildlife tourism

    Game and Fish embraces new initiative to benefit wildlife with watchers’ dollars. “It really was an opportunity to share with the wildlife decision-makers of the state the experiences that draw millions of visitors here annually,” Colligan said. “The vast majority of those people who come here to visit and enjoy wildlife don’t buy hunting and fishing licenses, and so they’re a constituent who goes unnoticed for the department.”

“SPIRIT” is a magnificent sculpture commissioned for Awareness Through Art by artist Terry Chambers.  These traps and snares were designed to trap and kill animals, but WU and Chambers are finding a new use for them as components in artwork to raise awareness about trapping.

Wyoming Trapping Incidents

We need your help — together we can achieve trapping reform in Wyoming

Tens of thousands of animals are trapped in Wyoming every single year. These numbers represent only the trapped animals reported by less than 30% of trappers in Wyoming from 2008 to 2020. For every trap, we believe one to ten non-target animals may be trapped. Every animal and bird of prey is a possible victim.
