Here is as photograph of Injured, the guy on the left. He is bull elk I have been keeping track of in Yellowstone National Park. He is on his way to recovery. About a month ago he wasn't able to put any weight on his left hind leg due to an injury just below the knee. I couldn't tell exactly how he obtained the injury, but it was swollen 3 times the normal size. Glad to see he is going to make the winter--here is an image of him with his companions...I'll post video soon of them. The winter still isn't over and wolves have moved into that drainage, but I think if he can keep up with the other 3 bulls he will be protected. Good luck, and stay with your buddies.
