Close range by Annie Proulx
I'm pretty sure I'm missing something since I'm not american and don't know anything about the stereotypes of Wyoming and because I'm not native english speaker and am reading the book in english.

Yes, you're right. It came out late last year and each story is sort of a fable with animal characters. It's VERY dark but less so towards the end... a lot of people had an issue with that though. Maybe not the most flattering book about humanity but I thought it was interesting, I liked it.
