Various thoughts and travels
The first time I was ever in Jasper (20 years ago), the elk were all over that town. In the streets, sleeping overnight in people's yards, they owned that place. Then the government did a massive cull or something and they've been under control ever since, safely outside the townsite.
I have seen the same thing happen. If you drive through the streets you will see lots of high fences to keep wildlife from getting into stuff in people's yards.
That last one of the bull and his harem is a cool one.
