* Culling of Rocky Mountain National Park Elk Begins

About time - I visited the park several years ago in the winter. The over browsing was unbelievable.
I found this fact (highlighted in red) at the very end of the article interesting:

"The culled animals are tested for Chronic Wasting Disease, with meat testing negative for the disease being distributed to the top names in a lottery that drew more than 5,400 applicants. The top name left on the list will receive an entire carcass. Meat testing positive will be given to a mountain lion research project."

That is a lot of folks wanting an elk to eat! I wonder how many of them hunt or would want to learn.
