Herds of Hundreds

Elk have become a serious problem in the Peace Country.  They travel in herds, agitate cattle, chase people, consume or destroy bales, break fences and even kill horses.  In short, they run rampant in certain areas, travelling in herds of up to 400.

Here is the problem, in more detail, in The Western Producer.

And the answer?  No one has yet.  If anyone has an idea, Spirit River area farmers would like to hear it.

  1. What a story! And here in BC we have Limited Entry Hunting for elk and you’re very lucky if your name is drawn to be allowed to hunt for one. There’s something wrong with this picture.

    Are landowners willing to allow hunters on to help control numbers. Anywhere to go for this information for farmers experiencing problems? Seems like a win-win!
