|Dead Elk Herd|
The herd of more than 100 elk were found dead and do not appear to have been shot or injured in any way.
Many suspect a disease called Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease, which is caused by insect bites.
EHD causes the elk to run a high fever and normally kills the elk with 8 to 36 hours.
Tissue and water samples from the area have been sent in for testing, but until a definite cause is determined there will be speculation. EHD is not contagious to humans but Fish and Wildlife have urged hunters not to harvest the dead elk.
Some comments about the cause of this mass die off have been all over the map. Here are some of the comments about what caused this die off.
Rick Frazier - "Gov't agent killing off the herds before the collapse of the dollar, mass rioting, country people feeding themselves for a long time on wild meat, thus resisting the new world order."
"This is the work of extraterrestrials. You think I am crazy but I tell you that one day, you will believe me and others who tell you the same thing. The world has changed."
Some are also thinking that maybe fracking of gas/oil wells could have something to do with it. Others are tying the massive die off to the bible, that it is part of the end time tribulations of the end the Earth age.
So I guess at this point we really don't know what caused this massive overnight die off. Once the samples are tested we may have more of an answer.
