  • Wyoming Game and Fish to Trap Wolves Throughout Spring and Fall 2014

    Wyoming Game & Fish will be TRAPPING and collaring wolves throughout the spring and fall for monitoring purposes. Signs will be posted in the trapping areas. In addition, unlimited traps (license not required) are legal on 85% of Wyoming public lands every single day of the year. To keep your companion animals safe, use a leash. Learn how to release your pet from a leghold, snare, and conibear trap. Always carry a leash and wire cutters when hiking.

  • Least Weasels Rare in Wyoming

    LEAST WEASELS: State law lists the "weasel" as a furbearer. Three weasel species exist in Wyoming: long-tailed weasel, short-tailed weasel (ermine) and least weasel. The least weasel is very small and its fur has negligible value. The species is quite rare and little is known concerning distribution. Trappers are asked to make every attempt to avoid trapping the least weasel. The Wyoming Fish and Game Department requests that unintentional trapping of a least weasel be reported to the Nongame Section in an effort to preserve the specimen for scientific use. TRAPS ARE INDISCRIMINATE!
