HCN Road Trip 2

Wyoming wildlife woes


Many of Wyoming's most heated battles involve wildlife, whether it's the sage grouse getting trampled by drill rigs and wind turbines, or wolves scrapping with ranchers. The HCN Road Crew checked out a less visible battle, one over the Togwotee Pass road widening project and the state highway department's efforts to make it friendly to the frogs, fish and big game. After you watch the video, check out the WYDOT public relations blitz (and fun jingles) devoted entirely to the "Togwotee Trail".

And read about some of the concerns put forth by the Wyoming Outdoor Council.
