Snowmobilers reminded to stay clear of wildlife

BISMARCK - The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is reminding snowmobile riders to stay clear of wild animals and their habitat, to avoid stressing the animals.

Assistant Wildlife Chief Greg Link says wildlife already is under winter stress, and the noisy machines could make it worse.

It is illegal to use snowmobiles to flush, chase or pursue wildlife in North Dakota.
