Re: Market Lake Idaho

I went there once a few years ago. Got some great burrowing owl shots back next to that little barn down the dirt road.

Rik, Great photos!!! I always wanted to see one but never have. Are they still endangered or have they made a comeback?

--Bill
They're endangered in Florida due to habitat loss.

Re: Grizzly euthanized by Park Service in Tetons

It wasn't euthanized by the park service, it was euthanized by Wyoming Fish and Game. It wasn't in the Tetons, it was in Jackson.

It's a dumbass, knee-jerk response that will do nothing to help the problem.

Re: Wolf Hazing

Yeah, they've been doing the same thing in the Lamar. It's disgusting and I wish I had the power to fire whatever idiot is responsible for it.

Well that is sad. Too bad there is not enough wilderness to relocate him far, far, away. Thanks for the update.

He'd been relocated once, up to the Fishing Bridge/Lake area of Yellowstone, but he made his way straight back to the Tetons. I think they should have taken him to the Lamar.

Re: Tetons on way to YNP May 2021

Sounds like a great visit Tim.
Unfortunately, the male pair of those two subadults you were watching (one of 610's cubs) was killed by Wyoming Fish and Wildlife a few days later after getting into the garbage in a residential yard near Jackson.

Re: Market Lake Idaho

Market Lake is a pretty cool place. I need to get back there sometime.
