I figured that was going to happen in a matter of time. Just not that far across. I also think you will see them in Cases Cove eventually unless they do something to stop or remove them.

They are already in Cades Cove and have been for a few years.

Where does the not wanted part come into play? I don’t imagine The feds care if they are on both sides.

They may be,but I usually camp up there every year and ride that 11 mile loop and I haven't seen one or heard tell of any one else having seen one inside the basin. Has anyone else?

I've seen them there two different times. Both times close to the visitors center and both times in December. I also noticed they added them to the "do not feed" sign.

Interesting they are now in Cades Cove

The farmers in TN and other states do not want elk but they are a native species

My biggest curiosity is; “did Eastern Elk taste different than Rocky Mountain Elk”

Cool little history tid but of the species. http://www.wideopenspaces.com/history-eastern-elk-now/
