Brucellosis Cause Could Be Elk

Laramie, Wy – The Head of Wyoming's Stockgrowers Association worries that a local Elk Herd could be behind the Brucellosis outbreak in Sublette county. Stockgrowers Executive Vice President Jim Magagna notes that an elk feed ground is located near the infected cattle herd. He says some of the elk are infected. If it is determined they are the cause, Magagna says they would want to reopen discussions over what to do with infected elk. He says currently the Game and Fish department does not move them, even if they are infected.
