Officials: No Hunting Allowed in Yellowstone National Park
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Officials at Yellowstone National Park are reminding the public that the park is closed to hunting.
Fall hunting seasons are opening on lands around the park. While most of the park boundary is well marked, officials say it's hunters' responsibility to make sure they don't enter the park.
Federal laws prohibit killing or removing any animal, living or dead, from inside Yellowstone. That includes animals that are shot outside the park and die within the park boundaries. It's also illegal to remove any animal parts including shed antlers from the park.
