Wildlife Flee Gilead Fire

Wildlife Flee Gilead Fire

The wildlife of the Big Horn National Forest are among the most affected by the Gilead wildfire, which has been growing since it was started by lightning last month. Public Information Specialist for the Game and Fish Department, Warren Mischke, said animals and hunters will have to deal with the huge loss of habitat.

The Gilead fire has burned more than 5,700 acres so far, and is expected to burn until it's stopped by natural weather occurrences, such as rain or snow.
