DNR wants to increase elk population

MADISON (WSAU)  Wisconsinites will have their say next month to a plan to bring more elk to the Badger State. The D-N-R will explain its proposals at meetings on October 1st in Hayward, October 2nd in Phillips, the 3rd in Ladysmith, the 4th in Black River Falls, and October 8th in Pewaukee. All meetings are scheduled from 7-to-9 p-m.

Wildlife officials have talked about importing about 275 elk from Kentucky to join a herd of about 180 elk roaming in the Clam Lake area of Ashland County – and to start a new herd in Jackson County.

The initial elk came to northern Wisconsin in the mid-1990’s in an effort to reintroduce the species.
