Second Year of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Elk Herd Reduction Starts
Last year Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota opened their doors to volunteer hunters/sharp shooters to help reduce their elk herd. This year the program is continuing, starting today. The culling of the elk herd helps keep it at a sustainable level for the park's ecosystem.
The back country and hiking trails in the south unit will be closed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through December 22nd to help keep visitors safe. From The Examiner.
