Kentucky Shipping Elk to Missouri

I guess we learned today why Kentucky hasn't increased our elk permit allotment over the past two years. According to the Courier Journal, Kentucky will trap 200 elk in Bell County and transport them three months later to Missouri. I'm going to assume this has been in the works for some time now. I'm also going to assume this will not be the last shipment to Missouri. With the addition of Missouri, the eastern US will now have elk populations in Kentucky, Tenn, Pennsylvania, and, West Virginia. According to the article, the RMEF will be donating over $300,000 to fund Missouri's elk resoration.
