Elk.....in OHIO.......

Outside of West Milton, Ohio area there is an Elk Farm....Miami Valley Elk Miami Valley Elk

...and we were driving by the other day on our way home.....and there were all these ELK right out by the fence line......Of course I had to go back and pull over and snap a few shots right from the truck......here are a couple. I cannot begin to tell you how BIG these guys are! (these were shot right before a bit further down the road a wild deer ran right out in front of my truck as I was driving at least 55 MPH.......A truck was coming head on the other way in the other lane...so I had no choice but to tap the brakes lightly and hope and pray it was enough to give the deer time to finish crossing.....he BARELY made it.....but he did....talk about feeling grateful!)

Yes, aren't they huge? I've seen them out every time we come over to your house, usually they aren't this close to the fence and road. Great pictures.

Beautiful-looking animals. I certainly don't see this in NYC, LOL! Wonderful photos!

We've seen them quite often. They are really nice looking.

Kind of a first for me, too. We don't have those in San Francisco either. Beautiful animals!

I am glad you got to see them. Seems like every time we go that way we see them but never stopped.
