Park Looks for Professional Packers to Assist with Elk Reduction
Date: July 6, 2010

Theodore Roosevelt National Park will be implementing an elk reduction effort in the South Unit in October. Teams of park staff and volunteers tasked with shooting cow elk will be supported by experienced meat recovery teams (packers), who will collect the meat and transport it using pack horses/mules to a cold-storage centrally located within the park.

"Safe and efficient removal of elk from the field is critical to the success of the program," said Superintendent Valerie Naylor. "Although we are not yet asking volunteers to sign up to assist with the elk reduction, we are currently looking for packers who would work as paid contractors to haul elk out of the park's backcountry."
