[at-l] First Elk born in Smokies



hey, gang!  

check this out.  

some of my fondest hiking memories are in the smokies when deer come up
and have breakfast with you.  Could you imagine having elk visit you for
breakfast!

and, for you women, how'd you like to give birth to a 40# baby!

===========================

Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials reported exciting news
with
the birth of a 40-pound male elk calf, the first to be born in the
Smokies
in over 150 years and the first to be delivered by the eight pregnant
cow
elk in the herd. The calf was evidently born on Friday, June 22, but was
not
located until Sunday evening hidden in a blackberry thicket close to the
meadows in Cataloochee Valley.
