  • Beavers making themselves at home

    Beavers have been hard at work for the last few months building dams in Spring Creek, which runs along Laramie’s south side from east of 30th Street to the Laramie River. As neighbors go, they keep to themselves and stay home during the day. But the city has its eye on them nonetheless.
  • Lawsuit Filed to Protect Rare Lynx From Traps in Idaho

    BOISE, Idaho— Five conservation groups filed a lawsuit today against the governor of Idaho and other state officials to halt trapping that harms and often kills Canada lynx, one of the rarest cats in the United States. The lawsuit charges Gov. Butch Otter, the director of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, and members of the state Fish and Game Commission with violations of the Endangered Species Act resulting from state permitting that leads to trapping and killing of lynx, a threatened species numbering as few as 100 animals in Idaho.
