Bull elk trailing back to hills
Seven bull elk follow in line from the Scott River through a rancher's field on Sunday, March 11, 2012. This is part of the Scott Valley herd of Roosevelt elk that were introduced to the Western Siskiyou area in the 1980s. The herd has grown and ranchers receive depredation permits to aid in management of the huge animals.   Liz Bowen
