WSU Receives First Elk for New Elk Hoof Disease Research Program

Washington State University has received its first elk for its new Elk Hoof Disease Research Program.

Salix arrived at the College of Veterinary Medicine in Pullman last week.  He was kept in full isolation and underwent a complete examination and has been given a clean bill of health.

The 5-month-old bull calf was bottle-raised by a licensed rehabilitation specialist after being orphaned near Mt. Rainier.
