When I read that a prized herd of 700 elk in southeastern Minnesota was being destroyed by sharpshooters under the employ of the USDA, I just couldn’t help but wonder what was really going on.  Supposedly, from all published accounts, a dead cow had tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease.  This supposedly occurred in January of 2009 and the herd has been quarantined since that time.  In my opinion, this is what the elk herd really suffered from: 

Chronic, “These elk are in the way of our new investment and building plans; help us get rid of them” disease.
