Ending Grand Teton National Park Elk Hunt

We believe hunting in a national park is inappropriate for a variety of reasons. Our first concern, of course, is the safety of visitors. Park visitors simply do not expect to have to duck bullets or wear hunter orange garments to be seen by hunters. A national park should be a sanctuary for people and wildlife. Our second concern is the use of hunting in Grand Teton National park to cull an elk herd kept over management objectives by artificial feeding on the adjacent National Elk Refuge. Both the park and refuge are overseen by the Department of Interior. We urge the DOI to appropriately manage its two agencies so that hunting in the park is not necessary.
