This is exactly what we were saying all along. F&G and it's liberal left wing partners use scare tactics vs. facts in order to push their agenda forward to end elk ranching in Idaho. None of these elk were a risk to the wild, not only are they disease free but they are also real elk! In the 1950's Yellowstone Park was overcrowded with elk and not enough feed, thus the Government sold elk to the public, thus starting this whole elk ranching industry. All these elk did was return home to Yellowstone where they came from.
The Owner was a vet

Of course they had no disease. The guy who owns all the elk is a vet. I know him personally. He may be a little different, but he definately knows what he is doing when it comes to elk.
