Concerned citizen tips lead to wildlife harassment conviction

(Casper, Wyo.) – 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.
