Relating to wild elk herds.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI, AS FOLLOWS:

WHEREAS, the elk industry is a nine million dollar business in Missouri and the state has more than one hundred elk farms with over one thousand elk; and

WHEREAS, over a third of Missouri's counties have domestic elk herds and Missouri has the honor of being the site of the international headquarters of the North American Elk Breeders Association, as well as, the North American Elk Research Council, Inc.; and

WHEREAS, Missouri is the Midwest's top elk trading state and according to Missouri law, elk are classified as livestock which enables elk farming without a special permit; and

WHEREAS, the unregulated breeding and gathering of wild elk herds in Missouri could be a safety risk since there is no natural food chain for elk in Missouri and there are no natural predators to control wild elk; and

WHEREAS, wild elk herds carry various diseases common to wild animals which can harm domestic elk livestock and such wild elk can cause damage to crops and other agricultural production as well as fences; and

WHEREAS, since the elk is the largest member of the cervidac (deer) family, another safety concern of wild elk herds includes the hazard to motorists; and

WHEREAS, the department of conservation has indicated it may support the reestablishment of wild elk herds in Missouri:

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the members of the Missouri Senate of the Ninetieth General Assembly, First Regular Session, the House of Representatives concurring therein, hereby ask the Conservation Commission and the Department of Conservation to reconsider any movement toward establishing wild elk herds in Missouri; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Senate be instructed to prepare properly inscribed copies of this resolution for the members of the Conservation Commission and the director of the Department of Conservation.
