9000 lb's of Elk Meat Given Away.

That supply should have gone to the national food bank for disaster relief, not to local residents who live in the heart of elk country.
I am comfortable saying that because I live here. Residents around here can KO elk all day on a depravation hunt like this. I have been on one. Like shooting a bottle off of a fence.
Too bad Wyoming has that mind set that they only want to help it's residents instead of joining in the fight for hunger across the nation.
In Laramie, we have the soup kitchen, Salvation Army and Inter-faith to assist needy residents of our community.
Well, your partially right Robert, it didn't rott.

I have some real mixed emotions about food banks and "people in need." I was talking to a person who got commodities from a food bank because of their income, etc. They were complaining that the free food they got was not really what they wanted to eat. In fact I know they gave some of it away to other family members.
There are people that really have no idea what hunger is. I am glad the meat was given away and not just wasted...

I came from a large city to Wyoming. I don't think people realize what homeless is here.
