CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A slow-moving landslide in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson has suddenly sped up, buckling a road and a Walgreens parking lot and threatening to destroy several unoccupied homes and businesses. A geologist said Friday it's unlikely the 100-foot-high hillside will collapse all at once, but it could start falling in large pieces.

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - Gillette is considering a ban on parking in some downtown alleys while a main road is being rebuilt. According to the Gillette News Record, the City Council unanimously approved an ordinance that would ban parking in the alleys on either side of Gillette Avenue so customers can access store back doors and delivery drivers can have access to their customers.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities say a Laramie County woman shot and wounded a pit bull that attacked her golden retriever as she was walking it. The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports that Yvette Dalley was walking her dog near the intersection of Links Road and Jack Rabbit Road on Thursday when two pit bulls attacked it. Laramie County Undersheriff Rich Hillegas says Dalley wounded one of the pit bulls with a handgun. The wounded pit bull died of its injuries. An animal shelter official says the owner of the pit bull gave up her second, uninjured pit bull to animal control officers, who euthanized it.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A federal judge has allowed the American Civil Liberties Union to file a brief in a lawsuit filed by Roman Catholic organizations in Wyoming. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne and other organizations sued the federal government in January. They're trying to block a birth-control coverage requirement in the federal health care overhaul. The ACLU filed papers Wednesday arguing the federal requirements don't violate the Catholic groups' religious rights.
