Wildlife watch

Department of Wildlife officials are asking everyone to be alert to wildlife following winter storms, especially deer and elk.

Deer and elk will move after a storm and are more vulnerable to cars and dogs. If dogs start chasing them, they can have difficulty moving in deep snow, exhausting themselves and becoming easy prey. DOW officers ask dog owners to prevent pooches from chasing wildlife.
They also remind us it's illegal to feed deer and elk.
