Elk Brucellosis WG Annual Meeting

The working group charged with developing elk management options in areas where the transmission of brucellosis between elk and livestock is a concern will meet in Bozeman June 13 to review the results of last winter’s activities.

The working group led an effort to examine effective elk management options and risk prevention efforts in several southwestern Montana hunting districts.  The areas generally include hunting districts that border or are near Yellowstone National Park.

The meeting is set to begin at 9 a.m. at the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ office in Bozeman at 1400 S. 19th St. The focus of the meeting is to review the recent legislative audit of FWP’s brucellosis program, as well as hear updates on research and management activities.

Brucellosis is a contagious bacterial infection in domestic animals, wildlife and humans worldwide.  In Montana, brucellosis has been detected in elk, bison and, in cattle in areas surrounding Yellowstone National Park.  The disease results in miscarriages in some pregnant animals, including domestic cattle, bison and elk.

The meeting is open to the public and includes time for public comment.  For more information visit FWP’s website at:  http://fwp.mt.gov/fishAndWildlife/management/elk/workingGroups/areasWithBrucellosisWG/
