Wow, that could get scary. Pennsylvania has a long standing elk herd, and it would be pretty tough on them if these captive ones get out there and inter-mix with the wild population. Hopefully they can track these ones down before they get that chance. If not, at least they can hope that any of the ones that come in contact with them are not infected with CWD, and then they will just add to the overall population of elk in that state.
Not sure what it would gdo for West Virginia, but we'll have to see. While it does not specifically say that this herd had tested positive or not for CWD, and it's only a couple of animals, you can't be too safe.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted.
