Microform - 1986
Rate this:
The East Kootenay region of British Columbia supports one of the greatestdiversities and highest densities of large wild mammals in North America aswell as a cattle ranching industry, producing competition between theseresource users. This study documents the movements and distribution ofnon-migratory elk in summer and early fall; estimates their numbers in themain conflict area between Kimberley, Wasa and Jaffray; documents their useof private lands in summer and early fall; determines the proportion ofcultivated crops in their diet; and interviews ranchers in the study areas todocument the problems being experienced. The effect of shooting elk usingprivate land at night was not evaluated because this type of control was notattempted.
