Elk Calf in Hiding, Montana

Photo of an elk calf lying perfectly still.

Elk Calf Won’t Move

This calf was seen very close to the road just north of Yellowstone National Park.  For the first couple of weeks after birth elk calves stay hidden like this for much of the time.  If they don’t move they are hard to spot. Grizzlies are known to run grid patterns through elk calving grounds until one panics and tries to run.
