Elk in Maryland, It Could Happen

Elk could be reintroduced to Maryland » Local News » Cumberland Times-News

I just read this interesting article regarding reintroducing Rocky Mountain Elk back into Maryland. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation gave the state of Maryland $125,000 to complete a study on the feasibility of returning these majestic animals to the eastern state.  Another great example of sportsman's dollars helping wildlife.

I know the state of Pennsylvania has certainly benefited from returning Elk to the wild and I am sure it would benefit Md as well, both for the sportsman and economically for the state. It may take some time, but hopefully the Elk get there.
