Bull Roosevelt Elk

Day 15 - Elk are sometimes called wapiti, a Shawnee word meaning "white rump". Elk came close to extinction around 1912 when there were about 126 remaining. Theodore Roosevelt took the lead in conserving the habitat of the elk and bringing them back in large numbers.

Very regal looking animal. The tree on the right is a bit distracting though.
