I posted this on my Facebook timeline, and on the Up Close and Personal in Yellowstone Facebook page, but it is so important, I wanted to also post a link to this lengthy article here, for the benefit of those not on Facebook.

Todd Wilkinson is an excellent writer, with a long history of researching and publicizing Yellowstone issues.

If seeing/photographing wildlife is one of the big draws for you to visiting our nation's first national park, you should read this article in its entirety. Todd had to have done a "boatload" of research for this article. He interviewed subject matter experts in many states outside the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that have been grappling with CWD infestation, as well as dozens of those within Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and the federal governments. From my perspective, the GYE is much like a "deer in the headlights", and the threat is already here. If you want to participate knowledgeably in the inevitable coming conversations is social media and at pullouts in Yellowstone, you owe it to yourself to read this document, even if you do it in increments over time.

For those following the bison/brucellosis issue, it makes its way into the article at one point, and Todd does an admirable job of framing it in the larger context of wildlife management in the GYE.
