MCF (Malignant Cattarhal Fever), which is commonly carried by sheep,is extremely lethal to elk and Bison. Knowledge on how this disease can spread is not yet fully understood. In Alberta, Bison have died that were on neighbouring property to sheep that were 1/4 - 1/2 mile away. Having sheep near elk is definitely a risk is consider.
