The article discusses the efforts made by the National Park Service's wildlife biologists to provide birth control drugs for the elk population in Colorado. Through this effort, the team wanted to use sharpshooters and birth control to reduce the herd because it is gnawing down the Rocky Mountain National Park. The program was the first time that biologists have been able to check live free-ranging elk for the disease. During the testing, researchers also injected cow elk with GonaCon, a multi-year birth control drug.
