Elk are increasingly becoming a problem for cattle and livestock farmers on the Pacific Coast, and into Canada, due to the new Elk Hoof Disease (elk rot) that is affecting the health of livestock including goats, cattle and sheep. Although sightings of limping elk have increased, the reported diseased elk and other animals are located in parts of Oregon and Washington State.Currently, there isn't a vaccine to treat the crippling hoof disease and researchers have yet to find other proven methods for curing the deformities.
Elk and large animal fencing is the best fence type for homeowners experiencing elk damage in gardens.
