Wyoming Warden Shoots Pet Dog Harassing Elk
Many states have laws that prevent pet dogs from harassing deer and elk, particularly during the long winter months. While it's rare to see the laws enforced, that appears to be just what has happened in the upper North Fork in Wyoming. The Cody Enterprise has a write up on the case.
"It's my fault and my responsibility," said Mike Neff, operations manager at Sleeping Giant Ski Area. His two-year-old female heeler/shepherd mix, "Bama," was shot by warden Craig Sax. Dogs must be kept under control in the national forest. Neff said he let his two dogs out of his cabin at Shoshone Lodge early that morning, and they ran off.
