Every spring the babies are born. Usually they have one baby…I suppose I should say ‘calf’…but a couple of years ago this one had three. I think that’s pretty unusual.
This herd of Tule Elk nearly died out here in north, central California, but with help they came back and are now thriving…with over 200 animals in the herd.
These elk are wild but like to hang out around the San Luis Reservoir, near Los Banos, California. Biologists come out and put collars on some of them to collect information as to where they spend their time. I think it’s here at the Department of Water Resources.
