Locked Up Bull Elk
Wildlife survival in Monticello, Utah
Here is how my day started yesterday (11-29-2007). Got a call that 2 bull elk were locked up and one was dead, the other still alive. The bulls were in a field about 15 miles Northeast of Monticello.
When I got there I actually found 2 bulls had locked antlers - I thought this only happened in other areas.
Jake and I were going to tranquilize the bull and saw antlers. One problem though was that we did not have enough of the drugs to do a good job.
So we walked out there and sawed the one point off of the dead bull’s right antler, then we had to saw the main beam of the left antler to get the other bull free. The whale tail was over the bulls eyes, lodged between the eye guards.
When we cut it free the bull stood there for a while, catching its breath with the piece of the antler still in it’s antlers. When it took off, the piece of antler came out.
