Yea. Looks like the WDFW is gonna kill the entire herd, 20 elk, to prevent the Hoof Rot from spreading.

Why not let some hunters tag them rather than having to pay someone to shoot them? Heck they could make money off the deal instead of spending it!  :twocents:

I saw a huge herd down there a few weeks ago.  40+ animals.  They were all high stepping pretty good

I've hunted there for years and never seen one limping. Seems like 20 elk is a large number.  :dunno:

Looks like we better start purchasing eastside tags now that Trout Lake is now considered east side....  :chuckle: :chuckle:

If it's in that herd I hope they eliminate them all and try to prevent the disease from spreading. What's worrysome, how many other herds have infected elk, this could be a game changer for elk in the entire northwest!  :o

Hopefully they can reduce or contain it.  All the conspiracy theories aside.  The sad part is this is a disease first identified in livestock that has crossed over to elk.  With the way people move livestock around it is terrifying.  Some drastic changes may occur in the future.
