Drought Affecting Wildlife Populations In ND

(Undated) — North Dakota’s drought is affecting the state’s wildlife. Game and Fish Department Wildlife Chief Jeb Williams says the dry conditions are impacting fish and wild animals in many ways, such as removing cover and making them more susceptible to predators. Williams says less food and water increases crowding and makes animals more likely to get diseases. Hungry animals also are more likely to get hit by vehicles when foraging near roadways.
