‘Staying Safe in Bear, Lion and Wolf Country’ workshop @ Wyoming Game and Fish Department Sheridan Regional Office
Mar 31 @ 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Would you know how to react if you were hiking in the Bighorn Mountains and you suddenly came upon a mountain lion or if you were camping and a black bear wandered into your camp? How about if you suddenly encountered a wolf or grizzly bear while hiking in Yellowstone National Park?

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will host “Staying Safe in Bear, Lion and Wolf Country” workshops at 7 p.m. March 30 at the Dayton Town Hall and at 7 p.m. March 31 at the WGFD Regional Office in Sheridan.

Information and tools will be provided to participants that they can use to avoid dangerous encounters and prevent future conflicts.

“There is potential for human interactions with black bears and mountain lions on the east side of the Bighorns,” Sheridan Wildlife Biologist Tim Thomas said. “The Game and Fish Department wants people to understand how to reduce the potential for conflicts ensuring the safety of both humans and the animals.”

Presentations will feature behavior and biology, safety and legal issues, and focus on what to do in an encounter situation. Demonstrations about the proper use of bear spray will be presented. Information will also be provided on how to reduce the likelihood of an unwanted encounter.

Seminars are free and open to people of all ages and skill levels.

For additional information, contact Bud Stewart at 672-7418.

Dayton Town Hall is located at 608 Broadway St. in Dayton.

The WGFD Regional Office is located at 700 Valley View in Sheridan.

Easter Egg Huntin’ with the Pooch

Saturday, April 4, 2015
11:00 SHARP – 11:30 am
Dan Madia Field west of Thorne-Rider Park (enter on 11th St.)

This is one hunt that has definitely gone to the dogs! And another one that will go very fast. After the Sheridan Rec District Easter Egg Hunt at 10 am, plan on bringing your pooch to Madia Field (located just west of Thorne-Rider Park) for the 3rd Annual Easter Egg Huntin’ with the Pooch event. Dog and owner will explore and locate eggs filled with dog treats, or discover tennis balls just the right size for fetching! Dogs will need to stay on a leash and, if the pooch has an accident, clean-up is your responsibility (doggie poop bags will be available). The Easter Egg Bunny will probably not show up, because bunnies generally get a little nervous around dogs. Co-sponsor is Sheridan Media. For more information, call the Sheridan Recreation District, (307) 674-6421.
