Point Reyes Elk and Cow = Good Neighbors


Something there is that doesn't love a wall - Robert Frost

Tule Elk and Point Reyes Cattle Can Live in Peace
Elk Fences Now!

In the northern Point Reyes Peninsula the National Park Service erected 10 foot fences before turning the Elk loose next to some working organic farms. That was 1998. After that herd's population grew exponentially, Park Employees moved a second herd to the area near Limantaur Beach but did not erect a fence. The elk found that eating pasture grass and drinking water from reservoirs the ranchers provided for cattle, much more inviting than foraging near Limantaur. Elk have become poachers. Elk Fences Now
