Wyoming Wildlife PSA

I've been cleaning out and scanning in papers from my childhood, and because I'm such a packrat, I've found some really great things. If I find anything travel related, I'll post it here.

In the summer of 2005, my family and I went to Wyoming. It was honestly one of the best family trips we've taken, and some of my favorite travel memories are from that trip. We went to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, so I'm not sure which of the parks this is from, but I found this double-sided PSA about wildlife a little funny and clearly liked it enough to hang onto it.

We did, coincidentally, see some incredible and majestic bison while we were out there, but no bears. (Which is fine with me - Kate had a pretty scary experience with one while she was in Wyoming!) I'd go back for another vacation there in a heartbeat.


  1. Living near the mountains, when you learn how to drive, part of the driving test is what to do if you are about to run into a deer/elk/other large animal on the road (generally at night where visibility isn't as far as we'd like). The right answer? Slow down as much as you can, when you're about 40-50ft in front of the animal and you can't stop before you get to them, GUN IT. This sends the animal up and over your car, instead of through the windshield and right at your face. **the more you know star**

    1. I love that you just know this off the top of your head! Probably they should have taught it to us, too, given the million deer that like to bound out at us here.
