Here is the latest Wyoming news from The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new federal earthquake map dials up the shaking hazard just a bit for about one-third of the United States and lowers it for one-tenth of the nation. The U.S. Geological Survey says parts of Wyoming moved into the top two hazard zones. The USGS also says Wyoming is among 16 states with the highest risk of earthquakes.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State troopers say all the new signs along Wyoming's interstate highways showing a speed limit of 80 mph mean just that -- 80 mph and no higher. A law that took effect July 1 raised the speed limit from 75 to 80 on almost 500 miles of interstate in Wyoming. The Highway Patrol said drivers exceeding the new speed limit are pushing their luck.

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming wildlife officials are seeking information about an antelope that was killed south of Gillette. The antelope was shot on Black and Yellow Road sometime last weekend. Sheridan Media reports only the head and back straps were removed. The rest of the antelope was left to rot.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming hunters who missed a chance to buy elk, deer and antelope licenses at a leftover license sale last week will get another chance. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says nearly 700 leftover licenses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 8 a.m. July 24. The licenses were still available due to a technical glitch in the original sale.
