With approximately ten percent of Pennsylvania's small elk herd wearing collars its not hard to see why many view these trusting animals as free ranging pets. I counted four collared animals in one small herd browsing along Rt. 555 yesterday morning.

Vandals struck at the new Elk Country Visitor Center when someone shot the elk silhouette atop the entrance sign. Rawley Cogan told us the gunshot damage happened last weekend.
Two shots marked the side towards town with four shots hitting the other side.
Cogan indicated that vandalism was considered during the design of this sign. The sign is made from 1/4" steel plate which kept damage to a minimum. Sad commentary on the human species that some always must destroy what others have worked so hard for.
