Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in trouble with Wyoming officials for harassing the wildlife in the area. The Wests are understanding that living in the wilderness means there are rules to follow that the reality couple may not have been informed of or just ignored.
Kim became known after their family started having cameras follow around their every move on Keeping up with the Kardashians, which has been on the air since 2007. With 16 seasons under their belt, and season 17 currently on the air, the family - consisting of fashion icons and entrepreneurs - is continually growing. Kim married rapper Kanye West back in 2014, and the pair have four children together: Psalm, Chicago, Saint, and North. The Wests recently bought a 9,000-acre piece of land called Monster Lake Ranch for a mere $14 million. The West’s only own half of their land and rent the other half from the federal government. Kanye hopes that the family will be moving out to the Wyoming ranch full time, but Kim says it's likely to only be a place they spend family vacations at during the summers.
Kim, Kanye, and the kids are obviously enjoying their new Wyoming family ranch and have posted a picture of themselves enjoying the cowboy state, see the post below. The transition from living in Los Angeles to living Wyoming hasn't been as smooth as they hoped, however. According to Fox News, the West family recently got in some trouble by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department over a video they posted of the new ranch that they bought. The video in question featured the couple driving very close to pronghorns which are also known as an American antelope. The video showed Kanye cruising at a high speed toward the heard, in the background, Kim is heard asking that her husband slow down a bit because she thought he could be scaring the animals. The video showed that the pronghorns were agitated by their presence, as they kept running away from the vehicle which insisted on getting closer to the herd.
The video raised alarm among the Wyoming Game and Fish Department which reached out via a spokesperson announcing that they had decided to send someone to the couple’s new ranch and have a chat with them. The state wanted to inform the couple of the laws prohibiting the harassment of animals in their state. The Wests defended their actions saying that after the recording stopped, they actually slowed down the car, but there was no proof of that since it was after the recording stopped. A source says that Kanye slowed down to allow the animals to cross over the path safely. The couple still claims that they were taking a Sunday drive around their new property not aware they had a heard of wildlife living on their land. According to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department announced that there was no formal complaint issued against the family as of now, which means there will be no further investigation into the incident. If the state were to investigate, the West’s could have been hit with a fine averaging around $435.
The department told Fox that since there is no formal complaint issued against the Wests, there's no cause for further investigation into the incident. They did, however, say that there could be a possibility of them getting a fine next time. Hopefully, the Wests have learned their lesson and in the future will respect the wildlife that shares the same land as they do.
