Blue rump elk
« on: July 09, 2021, 07:13:28 AM »
I have seen the blue rumped elk on my cams a few times. Any idea what is going on, or why she is colored like that?
The cam is in Thurston county and I have messaged the biologist in the area, however haven't heard back.

Sheep farm near by?  :chuckle: Do elk farms use dye bags?

Someone shot it with a paintball gun.
In someone's garden.
Just guessing :dunno:
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

It looks like it might be the beginning of mange to me. This article has a good example of it:  https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/diseases/hair-loss

Why are US churches sending missionaries to foreign countries?  Is it because we think we don't need them or because we think they might actually listen and change.

Looks to me like that "blue" area is where there is no hair, just skin.
