The Female Elk [Wapiti] - CAPW5405-1 - Animals
This Elk (female cow) is grazing along the roadway in Jasper National Park, Jasper, Alberta, Canada. This cow is one of a herd of about 15 or so females which is controlled by the bull Elk. The name "elk" comes from Britain. When the first explorers came to North America, they gave the animal that name. More commonly today, we refer to the elk as being a "Wapiti" [wa-pa-tee].
