>Yeah, I don't really know what an elk is. Etymologically "elg/lg" and >"elk" are probably the same word, but that doesn't mean the animal is >the same :-) The animal that Europeans call an Elk we in America call a Moose, that which we call an Elk is a close relative to the European Red Deer/Stag. The American Elk would more correctly be called by its American Indian name the Wapiti. BTW the American pronghorne antelope is not really an antelope either.
