decline in migratory elk calves http://wyomingpublicmedia.org en Study examines reasons behind decline in migratory elk calves http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/study-examines-reasons-behind-decline-migratory-elk-calves <p>Since the 1990s, elk that migrate between Yellowstone National Park and Cody have been raising fewer calves. But the elk that stay in the foothills near Cody year round and <em>don’t</em> migrate have been doing very well. A new study looks at why that’s the case. Wyoming Public Radio’s Willow Belden spoke with the lead author on the report, Arthur Middleton. He says they spent years looking at the elk’s predators and habitat, and how those corresponded to elk pregnancies and overall wellbeing.</p> Fri, 07 Jun 2013 21:52:13 +0000 Willow Belden 41978 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Study examines reasons behind decline in migratory elk calves
