Winter wildlife feeding suspected in bull elk's death

January 24, 2014

This 6-by-7-point bull elk was found dead Jan. 9 in the town of Byrnedale, Elk County. A necropsy performed on the animal revealed its death likely resulted from supplemental winter feeding, which is illegal for elk and can do more harm than good for other wildlife.
