Elk worker killed

Elk kills worker
A domesticated bull elk gored a ranch worker to death Thursday morning at a ranch east of Craig.
The worker, John Renner, went into the elk’s pen at the Wyman Living History Ranch and Museum between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to feed the animal, according to reports from other ranch workers.
Lou Wyman, the owner of the ranch, said Renner was not supposed to go into the pen to feed the elk.
The 9-year-old elk, named Clyde, has never attacked a worker in the nine years Wyman has had it, Wyman said.
The elk will probably be killed, Wyman said.
