The Elk of Suffield (24 by 36" acrylic on canvas) In Private Collection
Elk were once widespread across the Grasslands but were extirpated from much of this region with the onset of European settlement. Elk have been re-introduced into the Canadian Armed Forces Base (CFB) Suffield in southern Alberta. Now you can see vast herds roaming this part of Alberta, perhaps a glimpse of the past. With no natural enemies in this area, these herds are now being managed by hunters.
