Patricia Martinez took this photo in the Whispering Pines area, east of the river.

The snow must have the elk reaching near desperation for good food sources. Last week, several of them managed to “break” into the horse barn and finding a large metal garbage can full of chicken feed, they proceeded to assault it. Apparently they were unable to pop the bungeed lid off, so they shoved the whole thing out of the pen, and proceeded to thoroughly smash it before eating every last bit of grain! We found the can battered and flattened underneath the trampoline — the lid and bungee cord nearby.
