State-funded BYU study finds elk move when hunting season starts — and it’s causing problems

*** begin quote ***

Utah’s DWR was hearing that hunters weren’t finding elk during hunting season. They also heard from private landowners that elk were eating them out of house and home. So they commissioned a study. Turns out the elk were leaving public lands when hunting season started and hiding on private land.

This is pretty funny.

It’s like elephants evolving to have shorter tusks in response to poachers.
