In November, Terry Spraker participated in the Velvet Ridge Elk Ranch tagging study by outfitting each elk with one of three tagging devices. The devices use radio frequencies to transmit unique information about the animal back to the ranchers. The Colorado Dept of Agriculture is leading the study in hopes it will eventually allow researchers the ability to trace where an animal with Chronic Wasting Disease came from, and what other animals might have been exposed.
