No Brucellosis in Tests

fwp logo Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks tested 43 elk in the East Fork and West Fork of the Bitterroot Valley in February. Blood samples, which are part of a larger 3-year study, showed no signs of brucellosis.
The bacterial infection is contagious and was found recently in elk in the Ruby Valley near Dillon. Officials have noticed a higher percentage of brucellosis since the 1990s — from 2 percent then to 5 to 16 percent now. Brucellosis can cause pregnant cattle, bison and elk to abort their calves.
Elk in the Bitterroot are being studied to determine factors effecting their survival in the area.
