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.

I've always thought that Moose was the American version of Elk. And my webber gives this definition: "Moose ·noun A large cervine mammal (Alces machlis, or A. Americanus), native of the Northern United States and Canada. The adult male is about as large as a horse, and has very large, palmate antlers. It closely resembles the European elk, and by many zoologists is considered the same species."
