Clyde our resident elk came from Lou Wyman's Ranch. Lou Wyman had one of the first domestic Elk Herds. When Clyde was born his mother died and he was then bottle fed. Even as an adult elk he would drink water out of a bottle!
As you can tell in the photos he is a kind animal. Julie Harris, Clyde's care taker, is giving him water with the hose and he definitely enjoying it!
Unfortunately at the age of 18 we lost our friend. He died this fall(2012), many people traveled far and wide to see this majestic animal.
