Sharpshooting Elk: Rocky Mountain National Park’s management plan draws fire

As we have reported here, Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park plans to use sharpshooters to thin its elk herd from roughly 3,000 to about 1,200 animals. Marksmen will work mostly at night and use silencers.

Check out this New York Times story on the growing controversy.
