Weaning Time ~ May 2005

Waiting

Before the Cow Elk calve, they must first wean off last year's calves who have been with them through the almost-a-year since they were born. This year these weanlings looked so lost and forlorn those first few days, and we felt so sorry for them, poor things! Weaning must be terrible for those little calf elk. This group of six in the photos below was joined later by the seventh one (photo above) waiting across the road while I took these pictures. We counted six females (Cow Elk) and one male with his first horn sprout (Spike Elk) in this group. ~Rose Muffett (05/08/05)
