Working Group Charter
The charter of this working group will be to collaboratively identify a problem statement, fundamental objectives and potential management options relative to effective management of elk in areas where brucellosis has been identified and where there is concern about brucellosis transmission between livestock and elk. The working group will be diverse and include both wildlife and livestock perspectives, advocacies and concerns. Any consensus products representing proposed guidelines for effective elk management in areas with brucellosis would be directed to the FWP Director and Fish & Wildlife Commission for their consideration and potential endorsement. The Fish & Wildlife Commission represents final decision authority and is not obligated to any endorsement.
