Elk Island National Park, Alberta, Canada CM-06

Description : Elk Island is Canada,s only national park that is completely surrounded by a fence. The fence restricts the movement of the bison to areas outside the park and also restricts large predators from entering into the park. To keep the ecosystem in balance, the park must surplus bison.

The annual roundup of the Park,s bison population is an activity that dates back almost 100 years. Since their arrival here in 1907, it has been necessary to bring the herds together into a central handling facility to check them for the presence of diseases, such as bovine tuberculosis (TB) and brucellosis, to vaccinate them and to select out those animals considered surplus.
