CODY - Would you know what to do if you suddenly encountered a wolf or grizzly bear while hiking, if a black bear entered your camp looking for food, or if you were surprised by a mountain lion in your backyard?

If you’re not sure how to react in these situations, attend one of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s “Staying Safe in Bear, Lion, and Wolf Country” seminars.

The purpose of the seminars is to increase participants’ awareness and understanding of bears, mountain lions, and wolves by providing participants with information and tools they can use to prevent conflicts and avoid dangerous encounters.

Presentations will feature behavior and biology, population status, safety and legal issues, what to do in an encounter situation, and the most current information on the use of bear spray.
