Elk in the B&B Yard

July 17, 2013

In late June this four point elk caught us by surprise.  The antlers are still in velvet.  He stood as still as a statue for several minutes, so was still there after I finally found the camera.  The Dept of Fish and Wildlife tries to keep the elk on the South side of the Cowlitz River, but since they are good swimmers they they probably cross whenever they feel like it.  There is not any sign of an elk herd in this area, and this bull seems to be a loner.IMG_2908
