Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Dan Vermilion and Region 3 wildlife manager Howard Burt will discuss brucellosis and elk at a Wednesday meeting of the Region 3 Citizens’ Advisory Committee in Bozeman.

The meeting starts at 12:30 p.m. in the FWP Regional Office. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.

The elk-brucellosis issue is the subject of a lawsuit filed last week by sportsmen's groups objecting to FWP's plans drawn up for the Paradise Valley.

Also on the agenda is a presentation on wildlife habitat by research scientist Richard Keigley. Additionally, there will be updates on several statewide issues and responses to questions provided by committee members.
