The Wyoming Game and Fish will hold public comment hearings on the new wolf management plan across the state this month, with Sheridan's meeting scheduled for Aug. 24 at Sheridan College. Eric Keszler, Assistant Division Chief and Public Information Officer for the Wyoming Game and Fish in Cheyenne, explains that the meetings are a part of Gov. Mead's desire to move the wolf plan along quickly.

Keszler took us through how to comment on the new wolf agreement.

The public meeting will be from 7-9 pm at Sheridan College... Mead announced last week that the state and federal Game and Fish officials had agreed on a plan that would maintain a population of wolves in Wyoming. At least 100 would be maintained in Yellowstone National Park and kept at that number under Trophy Game Status. Wolves in the rest of the state could be shot on site. The plan still requires approval of the Wyoming State Legislature.
