Most of the bones are from a cow elk that went down there from sickness about 6-7 years ago. I watched the poor thing for two weeks or so when I was stopping by after work. Contacted the BLM about euthanizing her. She went down on her own. Stayed away for about a year because of the smell. Called them the dead elk instead of East Elk Boulders after that.
