“It’s a safety issue” say two school superintendents asking the state to manage the imported elk herd in Skagit Valley

  • July 3, 2019

Two school district superintendents are adding to the urgent calls for Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife to step up and manage the out of control imported elk population in Skagit Valley. Farmers have been complaining for years that the 600 plus elk imported improperly on the Valley floor have been causing damage to farms and even driving farmers out of the valley. Now, the superintendents of Sedro-Woolley and Concrete school districts, plus long time bus driver Kim DeVaney ask: who will be held responsible when a child is hurt or worse?
