Cool pic, from your part of the country, Toney.
I did not know that "Wapati", a native American name for "Elk" as we know them, ranged that far East.
As to their 'tameness', every year in Yellowstone NP, someone "pets" the wrong Deer, Elk, Moose, Bison alongside the walking path or road inside YNP, and pays the penalty of bumps, bruises or worse!
I, myself have been with-in the 'thickness' of auto-glass from being 'nose-to-nose' with a bear! Back in the 1960's when "Bear-Jams" were the norm in YNP. My mother rolled the rear window up 'Faster than any Electric Motor' could have (in that period)! I think the bear and I both left 'smears' on the window!
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
