Seems like an awful waste of elk. Sounds like Texas and our scorched earth policy for dealing with CWD. I thought live tests for CWD were now available?

That story is a true shame, there are ways to pull samples on a live animal to test for cwd. To kill the remaining elk in a herd to eradicate what they believe is a cwd outbreak and then find out only the original tested elk was the carrier and no remaining elk in the herd were infected should be a crime of animal abuse!

Should have put down the infected, tested all others and kept them quarantined for a period of time.
