I guess I should try harder to stump the band. :lol: Some private individuals brought them in here several years ago (about 20) from Colorado I think it was. They had a mysterious brain worm eating their brains the first few years they were here. They have prospered now and are destroying private property as they do everywhere . 75 head on one end of this long bottom and cows on the other. Thinking back , I wonder what the brain worm was? I remember them saying they had holes in their brains where the worms were eating it.... I think elk have a bse type illness as well. Could it have been that? Is there a brain worm in elk that I am unfamiliar with? These were taken on the Buffalo River in North Arkansas.
