By Jackalope Jordan


Wildlife biologists have identified the first elk in Montana’s Tendoy Mountains to test positive for Brucellosis. The Tendoys are just outside Montana’s Designated Surveillance Area

Montana Untamed reported FWP tested 100 elk in the Tendoy Mountains. Only one tested positive for brucellosis.

Elk in the southwestern Madison Valley were also tested for the disease. This area is part of the DSA and six elk of the 41 tested had Brucellosis.
