WILDLIFE IN WYOMING

Impacts of Bluetongue on Wildlife

Hemorrhagic disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in susceptible species in Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain west, but significant mortality events are cyclical and there are no data to suggest that these events affect population stability or are limiting populations. At present, there is insufficient information to warrant management actions to control or prevent disease events or outbreaks in wildlife, but hemorrhagic disease has the potential to negatively impact small, threatened, or endangered populations or species in the future, and continued disease surveillance is recommended and warranted.
