Expert: Wildlife animals and people can coexist
Jackson Hole News & Guide
Jackson Hole is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including the iconic grizzly bear. Millions of people flock to this region each year to live, work and play, while others call this place home. Many want to live with the wildlife that share this place, but are at a loss at how or are not aware that they are having negative impacts on local wildlife.
Human-wildlife conflicts continue to rise across North America, as more people venture and choose to live where wildlife roam. Countless animals will lose their lives each year to vehicle strikes, habitat loss, conflicts with people, and for gaining access to human food and garbage. The list goes on. A recent study released on large carnivore attacks, attests that half the attacks that do occur, are human caused. With this in mind, what can we as a community do to reduce our impacts on wildlife and reduce the number of attacks we see each year in this region?
