Jasper Wildlife Elk Mother Nuzzling Calf 092807 25

Jasper Wildlife Photo Comment

A caring moment between a strong mother elk and calf.

It is often the matriarch within the elk herd that acts most aggressively towards those that approach within invisible boundaries. Her natural role as the "protector" of the herd also awards her with a role in human-wildlife conflicts. Being considered an aggressive female warrants her wearing of the red collar seen in this pic.
