Talk: Large Carnivore Management in Wyoming

Large carnivore management in Wyoming is multifaceted and always dynamic. Mountain lions, wolves, grizzly bears, and black bears are monitored and managed by a team of experts working together to maintain viable populations of large carnivores in suitable habitats. The team uses a science-based adaptive approach and proactively manages to mitigate human/wildlife conflicts. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department strives to include localized expertise as well as public desires and attitudes in developing objectives and making management decisions. The Large Carnivore Section provides information and education on large carnivore management and safety to the public all over the state through Bear Wise Wyoming. Through changing population dynamics of both wildlife and people, carnivore management in Wyoming will continue to have its rewards and challenges.
