CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is asking people to control their pets around wintering wildlife.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1wGXDU9) that even if an animal is not caught and killed by a pet, the stress of being chased can cause it to lose important energy reserves needed for winter.

Already, a deer had to be killed recently after injuries from a dog in the Jackson area. In another recent case, a cow moose injured a dog.

Dogs found chasing big game animals may be killed by wildlife officers and the pet owners may be cited.
