The elk belong to the people not the Dow"" The people should be invited to trim the heards down and give the meat to the people of moffat county that need food, If the farmer makes the money off

Many in our community were appalled at the felony conviction of Rodney Culverwell for protecting his family, property and livelihood. The wildlife in this part of Colorado are out of control and the DOW is not doing it's job. Not only the elk in areas that have been farmed for generations but there is a resident herd of 2,500 (2005 numbers) in the Town of Craig (2005 population 11,000 m/l.) that works out to roughly 2 deer for every 100 people. The wildlife population has exploded in the last 15 years.
