Dubois center, Wyoming PBS to screen nature documentary
Jul 28, 2014 - From staff reports
Wyoming PBS and the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center will host a free public screening of the documentary "Touching the Wild," featuring naturalist and author Joe Hutto of Lander.
Afterward Hutto will answer questions and sign copies of the documentary's companion book, which will be available for sale.
The event will include light snacks and begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Dennison Lodge in Dubois.
Hutto has dedicated seven years of his life to becoming a wild mule deer. Ordinarily, the deer herd would run from any human, but these intelligent animals come to regard this stranger as one of their own.
As he crosses the species divide, Hutto taps into a new understanding of these elusive animals. His joy in his new family is infectious, but this human predator also learns to see the world from the point of view of prey -- and it's an experience that will rock him to his core.
