Nary a day goes by that we don’t see Big Ben, Jerry, Taggie and many other of our in-town elk strolling down the middle of the streets, helping themselves to bird feeders and bushes, or even attending a mid-summer night’s concert in the park.

As strange as it may seem, before the very early 1900s, the entire territory of Arizona had not one elk roaming anywhere in the state.
