A wild elk steps quickly in the Elk Refuge, Jackson, Wyoming (USA). There is a great deal of controversy as to whether this practice is wise, with the herd becoming more and more reliant upon unnatural feedings.
With Wyoming’s current policies on wolves, the herd’s natural predator which weed out the old and sick, is the herd a healthy one? Some hunters, who want targets within an easily reachable range in the hunting season, would have wolves annihilated so that they have more game.
It’s a cause of concern for both conservationists, and ethical hunters.
