Governor wants to intervene in Western Watersheds and elk feedgrounds lawsuit

(Jackson, Wyo.) – Wyoming is seeking to intervene in a lawsuit to defend Wyoming’s elk feedgrounds from a challenge by Western Watersheds Project. The Forest Service granted the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission a 20-year special use permit for the elk feedgrounds in 2008. In July 2014, Western Watersheds filed a petition asking for a review of that decision.
