A bill in the Wyoming Legislature, if passed, would allow citizens to cart off roadkill from the state’s roadways.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission would oversee regulations and permitting.

A wood stove malfunction is the suspected cause of a fire that gutted an unoccupied home behind the ADM plant in Garland Saturday night.

“We’re pretty certain he had a wood burning stove that was the culprit,” said Asst. Chief Damian Dicks of the Powell Volunteer Fire Department. The house was completely engulfed before the owners realized it.

Wyoming fell short of its 52 wolf quota in the trophy game zone by 10 when the season ended Dec. 31, 2012.

The limit was not reached, probably because wolves proved harder to hunt than many thought they would be, said Mark Bruscino, Wyoming Game and Fish Department statewide supervisor of the large carnivore management section in Cody.

Two state agencies are advising people to watch the level of mercury in Wyoming fish they eat.

Wyoming got its shot at wolf hunting this fall. Meanwhile, three lawsuits now are aiming to end hunting in Wyoming and return the canines to the Endangered Species List, at least in Wyoming.

Electro-shock will be initiated in fall 2013 off Carrington Island, a hotbed of lake trout spawning. Electricity will kill lake trout eggs and embryos. The National Park Service supports the effort.

Environmental groups file suits

Environmental groups once again are aiming to place Wyoming wolves under federal protection.
