Feeding the Problem Documentary

What began in 1912 as a gracious effort to save the Jackson Hole elk herd from harsh winters, has morphed into a century-long feeding program on the National Elk Refuge and 22 other State-run feed grounds. This biological experiment has created a petri dish for wildlife disease, and is now one of the most contentious and fiercely debated issues in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
