Elk in Cannon Beach in November

Elk in Cannon Beach

Driving by Les Shirley park today there were a group of cars stopped, so I pulled over to see if there was anything other than the usual 200 hidden bunnies hopping around. Sure enough there were 10 Elk just hanging out eating some grass. There was one majestic bull and 9 cows. I snuck around in the bushes to get closer and had a great zoom. After about 10 min they got spooked by something and ran off down the river to the beach.

I've changed the title and internal references to say Elk and let the submitter know.

Thanks for all your corrections, I got side tracked making sure I got the names of the Female (Cows) and Male (Bull) names correctly and wrote Moose instead of Elk. Peace, gchand
