Mixed reaction to Elk Refuge ruling

Aug 4, 2011

A federal appeals court has refused to set a five year deadline to phase out winter feeding on the National Elk Refuge in Jackson. But some environmental groups say the ruling also clarifies that winter feeding for Elk and Bison should be stopped soon. Lloyd Dorsey of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition says it overturns a previous ruling that said that winter feeding should continue indefinitely.
"This certainly adds impetus to the responsibility of the fish and wildlife service to expeditiously phase out the winter feeding program on the national elk refuge."
