Not lightning, that was ruled out. 100 elk is a lot, for a single die off. While large numbers of animals, > than 100, have died from lightning strikes. Those were all clustered together, all of them sheep or cattle. These elk are spread out, over an area 1/2-3/4 miles. Too large for lightning to have caused it. Hopefully you are all as comedic next year.

Beyond high temps, but also exacerbated by them, algae blooms that contain cyanobacteria, that produce anatoxin-a, tend to be found in water that has high acidity, and nitrification. Algae blooms of cyanobacteria, that do not produce toxic anatoxin-a, concentrate heavy metals, and are high in selenium and iodine at certain PHs. With elevated temps and nitrification, the antioxidant effects of the metals are lost, and toxins such as anatoxin-a are produced. In what has become the classic Western pattern, cattle and wildlife deaths attributed to anatoxin-a, were first discovered in the 1960s, with increased occurrence since 1980. For those with livestock, this is another good reason to use galvanized troughs.
