RIDGWAY - Fran Gustafson, a Jay Township supervisor, shared concerns about the growing elk herd Tuesday morning during an Elk County Commissioners meeting.
"It's getting bad-- they're eating the grass, people can't have gardens, they can't do anything," Gustafson said. "I don't know where this is going to lead. It's now becoming a county thing, not a township thing, and it has spread and spread."
According to Gustafson, there have been at least three vehicle accidents in the past month, with three vehicles being totaled, due to the elk presence.
