A state biologist’s report on how California plans to manage local elk herds was met with frustration by the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors, who said more should have been done already to address surging elk populations.

Dave Lancaster, a wildlife biologist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, told county supervisors that development of a statewide elk management plan is underway and that a draft for public comment should be available soon after the dawn of 2015.
