$253,800 approved for five ‘high-priority’ Wyoming Game and Fish projects


CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department approved $253,800 in funding needed to complete five “high-priority projects” during its meeting in Riverton this week, the Game and Fish Department said on Wednesday.

The $253,800 are for one-time expenditures related to the five priority projects.

“The funds will support work [at] Fall Creek to provide water for the department’s elk feedground draft horses; installation of a pivot at Spencer Moriarty Wildlife Management Area; monitoring for farm-raised sage grouse; an evaluation of the Sweetwater Rocks for a proposed bighorn sheep translocation; and development of a mobile app with Wyoming Department of Transportation to authorize roadkill collection,” Game and Fish said.

The commission also authorized final rules for roadkill harvesting in the state, which now await Governor Mark Gordon’s signature before people can begin harvesting roadkilled animals.
