  •  They've wreaked a lot of harm on large ungulate (0+ / 0-)

    populations across the northern rockies. This is in no way news. Largest migrating elk herd in the world down 75%. Unless you only one sort of media source this is not a secret.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

    •  Unchecked large ungulates (0+ / 0-)

      were wrecking their environments, generally by overfeeding.

      Now they seem to be approaching historically sustained levels:

      So, what exactly is the problem?

      Personally, I think here in NJ we could do with some further reduction for our large ungulates considering how much damage they do when hit by a car.

      75% reduction in deer/elk nationally would save about 150 lives a year from a reduction in auto accidents. What price tag would you put on that?
