Rocky Mountain National Park, CO - Elk - 2

In 1913 and 1914, before the establishment of Rocky Mountain National Park, the Estes Valley Improvement Association and United States Forest Service transplanted 49 elk from Yellowstone National Park to this area. Around the same time, an all-out effort began to eliminate predators - including the gray wolf and the grizzly bear. The resulting decrease in predators hastened the recovery of Rocky's elk population. Photo by Kathy Weiser-Alexander.
