Drought Pushes Wildlife Away From Usual Areas

Drought Pushes Wildlife Away From Usual Areas

Sheridan Media recently reported on the effects of this year's record-setting drought and how it may impact wildlife. Game and Fish information Specialist, Warren Mischke, said we may see deer, elk, moose or bears in unusual
areas.

The New York Times reports similar unexpected sightings are happening all around the Rocky Mountains. Mischke said municipal residents should be very vigilant of wildlife in town. He said last week, a moose was struck by a vehicle in Dayton. The vehicle was totaled, and the young male moose died.
