Changes to Wyoming’s trapping rules set to be considered at upcoming meetings
A red fox captures a rodent while foraging for a meal near the Northeast Gate of Yellowstone National Park. Foxes are considered predatory animals in Wyoming and, along with coyotes, jackrabbits, porcupine, raccoon, skunk and stray cats, can be harvested without a license in the state.
Trapping regulations could soon be changing in Wyoming as a newly organized Game and Fish Department committee explores making recommendations for approval by commissioners.
The Trapping Committee was formed to look into possible changes after two groups concerned about safety issues presented petitions to the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission earlier this year.
