Random information on the term ” Elk”:
The Roosevelt elk (Cervus canadensis roosevelti), also known commonly as the Olympic elk and Roosevelt’s wapiti, is the largest of the four surviving subspecies of elk (Cervus canadensis) in North America. Its geographic range includes temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, extending to parts of northern California. It was introduced to Alaska’s Afognak, Kodiak, and Raspberry Islands in 1928. The desire to protect the Roosevelt elk was one of the primary forces behind the establishment of the Mount Olympus National Monument in 1909 by President Theodore Roosevelt. Later in 1937 President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the region and saw the elk named after his relative. The following year he created Olympic National Park.
The Roosevelt elk grows to around 6–10 ft (1.8–3 m) in length and stands 2.5–5.6 ft (0.75–1.7 m) tall at the withers. Roosevelt elk bulls generally weigh between 700 and 1,100 lb (300–500 kg), while cows weigh 575–625 lb (260–285 kg). Some mature bulls from Raspberry Island in Alaska have weighed nearly 1,300 lb (600 kg).
