Elk reduction program to begin Oct. 18 at Grand Teton National Park

(Moose, Wyo.)  — The 2014 elk reduction program begins Saturday, October 18, in Grand Teton National Park. Changes that became effective in 2013 will be continued for the 2014 season. Those changes include: a requirement that hunters participating in the park’s elk reduction program use non-lead ammunition; a limit to the number of cartridges hunters may carry each day; and the closure of a portion of the Snake River bottom to reduce the chance of grizzly bear-hunter encounters.

Riverton’s public intoxication problem is being fixed, Police Chief says

(Riverton, Wyo.) – In May 2013 the Riverton Police Department hosted a public forum on the topic of the city’s public intoxication problem. Eighteen months later, after a number of initiatives were launched, there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of public intoxication cases in the city, including a drop in drunk driving arrests and alcohol related traffic crashes.
