Wyoming (US) Elk Dying

Posted by Amaranth Rose on Mar 15, 2004 at 05:11

"Since a coyote hunter found two paralyzed elk near here on Feb. 8, close to 300 elk have been felled by a mysterious illness that no one can identify.

Wildlife officers have euthanized about 200 of those animals after finding them starving, dehydrated and unable to move. They took four into captivity to try to nurse them to health and learn more about their illness. [Only one of the four is still alive.]"
