New Law Aimed At Preventing Elk-Involved Collisions

(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill signed into law by Washington Governor Jay Inslee directs state agencies to conduct an elk-management pilot project to reduce highway collisions involving elk.  Moses Lake Representative Tom Dent, who sponsored the measure, says it was developed in response to the growing problem of the Colockum [[ CLOCK-um ]] elk herd in Kittitas County and the safety hazards that go with it.  Under the new law, the pilot project would include limited hunting of the Colockum herd, establishment of a permitting mechanism to allow a person to feed elk by permit only, and use of managed livestock grazing to draw elk away from roads and private property.
