Game and Fish offers seminar on large carnivore safety
Would you know what to do if you suddenly encountered a wolf or grizzly bear while hunting, if a black bear entered your camp looking for food, or if you were surprised by a mountain lion during a backpacking trip?
If you’re not sure how to react in these situations, plan to attend the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s “Living in Large Carnivore Country” seminar. The purpose of the seminar is to increase awareness and understanding of bears, mountain lions and wolves by providing participants with information and tools they can use to prevent conflicts and avoid potentially dangerous encounters. Information will be presented on large carnivore behavior and biology, life history, proper food storage, what to do in an encounter situation and the proper use of pepper spray.
The seminar will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 11, at the Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center at the corner of 10th Street and Lewis Street on the University of Wyoming campus. The seminar is free and open to people of all ages. For more information, contact Robin Kepple at (307) 777-4523 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
