Discussion Topic: Should Canned Elk Hunts Be Banned?
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
From the Jackson Hole Star Tribune:
Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer has joined Wyoming’s chief executive in calling on Idaho lawmakers to ban wild game farms and private hunting reserves to protect the health of Yellowstone's wild elk herds.
“In Montana, we said it’s a bad idea to pen up a bunch of elk, feed them oats and have fat bankers from New York City shoot them while they’ve got their heads in a grain bucket,” Schweitzer said Wednesday during an interview in the Boise offices of The Associated Press.
