That's awesome! Huge, but gentle animals.

But I've just been confused by you calling it an elk, as I thought 'moose' when I first saw its picture. And it is what we'd call a moose. Wikipedia cleared up my confusion...

"This animal should not be confused with the larger moose (Alces alces), to which the name 'elk' applies in Eurasia."

As you'll note in the link, we have elk here. (Which we generally call 'wapiti'.) Moose were introduced, but died out.
