The Hanford elk herd was near Highway 240 north of Richland, Washington, in February. The state Department of Fish & Wildlife has said it will euthanize elk in Eastern Washington that are found to be infected with a hoof disease. The disease was first found in the state’s elk herds about a decade ago in southern parts of Western Washington. It was found in recent years in the northwest part of the state, including in Skagit and Whatcom counties.
