DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

Iowa officials are turning to social media to answer questions about the state's wildlife.

The state Department of Natural Resources says wildlife supervisors will be on the social networking site Facebook on Dec. 19 to answer questions.

Karen Kinkead and Willie Suchy of the Wildlife Diversity Program will monitor a specific post for questions on anything ranging from animals in a backyard to out in the field. People can also post questions ahead of time on the agency's page.

The pair will answer questions between noon and 2:30 p.m.
