Scientists Thought The Tule Elk Went Extinct 157 Years Ago Until They Met Someone Incredible
Tule elk once numbered in the hundreds of thousands as they roamed the Pacific coast of central California. However, by 1860, they were nearly hunted to extinction.
In fact, nearly everyone had thought they WERE extinct. But one thoughtful and secretive cattle-rancher had offered refuge to the last surviving herd of tule elk.
Over one hundred years later, tule elk were reintroduced to their native habitat.
