Judge finds for USNPS in dispute over Tule elk in Point Reyes NS

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) — A federal judge ruled in favor of the National Park Service on Monday and rejected claims by animal rights activists that the agency endangered Tule elk populations north of San Francisco.

A group of plaintiffs and the Animal Legal Defense Fund claimed the National Park Service failed to revise a 1980 management plan for the Tomales Point portion of the Point Reyes National Seashore. There, approximately 293 Tule elk live behind an eight-foot fence erected to prevent them from competing for forage and water with the cattle that the service permits to graze on park land.
