Clyde the elk passes away at Wyman Museum

Craig has lost a unique member of its community. The Wyman Living History Museum’s Clyde the elk died Saturday afternoon, leaving behind a legacy of friendliness to employees and visitors that lasted throughout his eight years there. The elk, born on the Wyman Elk ranch in 1994, came to the museum when it opened in 2004 and had been there to entertain visitors every day since. His draw was strong for anyone visiting the museum for the first time, but he was a favorite of children coming on field trips from the local schools.

In the video from superstar42's link you can easily see how heavy that rack was and Clyde's difficulty in moving. I'm glad he had a good life, but it was time for him to go to his permanent home. Goodbye Clyde, we miss you!
