Photos: Herd of elk spotted in Wildridge

AVON — Taylor Seaton woke up Wednesday morning to a herd of about 52 elk in his backyard.

Seaton said neighbors hadn’t seen elk in the neighborhood for close to 30 years.

“Possibly all the snow this year is making it hard for the Elk to find food and maybe the larger bull elk have been trekking through the deep snow to find food and running out of energy to their deaths,” he said.
