Grizzly Tracks Found East of Cody
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 20, 2017
Biologists with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department have documented grizzly bear tracks on public land east of Cody.
Bear Wise Coordinator Dusty Lasseter said that grizzly bear tracks were verified Wednesday on Bureau of Land Management land near Sunset Rim. However, no observations of the bear have been reported to Game and Fish.
Lasseter points out that at this time, there is no indication that the bear has localized in the area, but he urges landowners in the vicinity to report sightings or bear activity to the Cody Game and Fish office.
Game and Fish staff will continue to monitor the situation, and Lasseter says this serves as a reminder that bears are still active this time of year and often move to lower elevations.
Game and Fish urges anyone recreating in areas that could be occupied by bears to be “bear aware” and take precautions to reduce the potential for conflicts.
