Elk Find Adequate Forage at Refuge
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Biologists say forage conditions at the National Elk Refuge remain good enough that supplemental feeding of elk and bison isn’t required yet this winter.
The refuge issued a statement saying its biologists and biologists with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department have been monitoring forage conditions closely.
A forage survey conducted this week noted most irrigated sites on the refuge are near levels where supplemental feeding is considered but that forage is available in other areas. An additional survey will be conducted at the end of the week after the current winter storm passes to reassess conditions.
