Wyoming Plans Another Ferret Release
"From the results of the survey, there appears to be a boom in the population,"
- Martin Grenier, a nongame mammal biologist with the state Game and Fish Department
Casper, Wy - Encouraged by the successful reintroduction of black-footed ferrets into central Wyoming's Shirley Basin, state wildlife managers plan to release more ferrets into the same area.
Grenier said releasing more black-footed ferrets close to the established population in the basin should help ensure the long-term stability of the species and bring new blood into the population.
