    First, change the laws so anyone using National Parks and public lands "assumes the risk" for anything other than deliberate man made injury. Then, have a special hunt to reduce the numbers as well as introduce Wolves into the area.
    If wolves are good enough for Yellowstone they are good enough for the Grand Canyon.

    Here is the solution: Have the federal government bring in wolves from Canada. That's what they did here in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming and now we have lots of wolves but very few elk. I miss the elk!

    People just want to do away with wildlife. What is wrong with the Elk being in a place we can observe them. You would rather kill them because they are make the traffic slow down. Not a bad thing. Slow down and observe the world, it is a beautiful place.
