Good morning, and welcome to Cowboy State Daily radio! 

Today’s top stories:

Four horses turned up dead on a Converse County ranch last week, and the owners believe they were poisoned with a "neurological toxin," but are uncertain how the drug was administered.

In a meeting of the Joint Education Committee Tuesday afternoon, legislators voted to reject part of a bill proposed by representative Bo Biteman that would have prohibited teachers from teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity to kindergarten through third graders. 

A black bear walked up to a man relaxing in a hammock in a Colorado campground late Saturday and bit the man’s arm before wandering off, and Colorado wildlife officials are out to kill it.

With prices at the pump up $.30 over the last month, some are wondering if President Biden will choose to tap America’s dwindling reserves to bring gas prices back down and avoid upsetting voters. Others are criticizing his administration for allowing the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to drop so low in the first place.

Those in north central Wyoming have been noticing a surprising phenomenon in the mountains for the beginning of August: summer snow. Cowboy State Daily meteorologist Don Day says early mountain snow could indicate an early fall and more active winter.
