Elk numbers grow at north end of Yellowstone National Park

Posted: Updated:

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - Elk populations in and around the north end of Yellowstone National Park remain strong.

The Northern Yellowstone Cooperative Wildlife Working Group recently conducted its annual count which shows elk numbers are up both in the park and in Montana north of Yellowstone.

According to the count, Yellowstone’s elk numbers are up 42% from last year and almost double the count from 2013. The survey began in 1976 and the highest total year was 2014, with more than 19,000 elk counted in the region.

Both members of the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks and the National Park Service conducted this year’s count using two airplanes over a two-day period of time.
