    Very sad. Hope this doesn't turn into much worse then it already is!

    What a shame. Let's hope that it stays contained to that area only.

    Curious as well!! In an EHD case the animals are usually found near water as it makes them very thirsty and search for water. Lightning strike has killed herds here in Colorado before and Elk eating lichen in Wyoming wiped out a bunch a few years back. Guess we will see!!!

    Well it could have been EHD like the biologists suspect but who knows, maybe some idiot wanted to screw up the elk herd on somebody's ranch and they poisoned the water. Definitely is concerning though

    I'm not sure if the elk were concentrated but a lightening strike can take out quite a few animals.
