Game And Fish Warns Dry Year Could Harm Deer
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Biologists with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department warn that dry conditions in Wyoming this year are leaving wildlife susceptible to high mortality this winter.
The game department reports that plant growth has been low because of lack of moisture. That's caused wildlife to be in poor condition.
The department warns that a heavy snowpack in lowland deer wintering areas will likely result in significant mortality.
