The Elk

These images were taken at the Bison Center near Mere,Wiltshire,U.K.

The Bison Center is a wildlife park that concentrates on native American species which include Elk which is very similar to our native Red deer found here in the U.K.

Yellowstone Park is on my bucket list,but for now being able to photograph these impressive mammels in a spacious natural surrounding was a treat.

Wapiti is the native American word for Elk which means light coloured deer.Their lifespan in the wild is 8-12 years and a bull can grow to 500kg
