Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 299 - Under the act, the Department of Conservation must compensate individuals for any damage caused to them by wild elk. Such damage may include damage to crops, pasture, livestock, property, or vehicles, as well as personal injury or death that results from a vehicle collision with an elk. The act allows landowners to kill any wild elk if the elk has damaged their property.

This act is almost identical to SB 38 (2001).
