Missouri: Public can weigh in on elk restoration

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Want elk? Don't want them? Either way, the Missouri Department of Conservation wants to hear from you. The Conservation Commission told the department in July to develop a proposal for releasing 80 to 150 elk into a 365 square mile restoration zone around the Peck Ranch Conservation Area in Shannon, Carter and Reynolds counties. The area has few roads where elk might be hit by vehicles and very little agriculture, so chances for crop deprivation are minimal. Adding to the area's appeal as an elk introduction site is the large amount of land owned by the department, the USDA Forest Service and the National Park Service.
