Wyoming’s Dark Side.
David Lass, has been charged with hit and run, animal cruelty, and taking a big game animal without a license. After hitting an pronghorn and injuring it, he then put the severely injured animal in the back of his truck and left it there while he went drinking. Lass told the investigating deputy that he had grabbed some boulders “to finish the antelope off,” but instead decided to leave it there before entering the bar.
This is a symptom of a bigger problem that Wyoming has where life is valued very little. Had this been a coyote, wolf, or other animal considered a 'predator' by the state, it wouldn't have been a crime. Mr. Lass wouldn't have even been charged with animal cruelty. Ethical standards for ALL wildlife are needed across the state. We sincerely hope this man is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Wyoming is considered to be the black eye of western states
as it relates to the welfare of wildlife.
They are also the ”top killers” of wolves.
