NCSD School Board Member Convicted Of Wildlife Harassment [VIDEO]
In late 2014, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department received over 30 tips from concerned citizens regarding a video on the internet they felt was wildlife harassment. The video showed an ultralight/sport aircraft repeatedly flying low over a large herd of elk in Deer Creek Park in the Laramie Range southeast of Casper. These citizen tips led to a wildlife harassment conviction.
“While amazing to see wildlife up close, the amount of stress the elk endured was uncalled for. People didn’t see the parts of the video where the elk were pushed through a barbed wire fence. That is why it is illegal to pursue or harass wildlife with any kind of motor vehicle, The Game and Fish appreciates people letting us know their concerns on these types of incidents. It is good to know how much people care about their wildlife.”
