Supplemental Elk, Bison Feeding Ending in Wyoming

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Supplemental winter feeding for elk and bison will soon be ending in northwestern Wyoming.

The Associated Press reports that the state recently began phasing out feeding at its three feeding grounds in the Gros Ventre drainage.

Meanwhile, the National Elk Refuge in Jackson will also start ending feeding elk alfalfa pellets this week. Elk refuge biologist Eric Cole said the state’s decision and favorable weather led to the decision.

Cole said refuge managers don’t want the Gros Ventre area coming to the refuge to feed because the state is no longer feeding them.

The average end of feeding there is April 4.

Wyoming Game and Fish biologist Doug Brimeyer said the Gros Ventre elk have started to lose interest in the hay distributed there.
