Laramie, WY – Two sets of brothers were fined more than $23,000 for shooting ten elk and leaving most of them to rot. Game Warden Alan Osterland says if there was a hunting rule to be broken, these men broke it.
"It's by far the worst example of sportsmanship, the worst example I've ever investigated," he said.
Osterland gave an example. "One of the guys never walked up to the carcass, the elk, to see if it was indeed dead. The last elk that we found was still breathing and we had to euthanize it," he said.
Laramie, WY – Wyoming's largest power company is seeking its second rate hike in two years.
Rocky Mountain Power filed an application with the Wyoming Public Service Commission seeking a 36-million-dollar spike in customer rates annually That means the average residential power bill could be four-and-a-half dollars higher every month.
Spokesman Jeff Hymas says the company can't get by on current revenues as the demand for power continues to surge from business, industry and residential users.
