A History of Native Elk in Mount Rainier National Park
APPENDIX I: ELK-RELATED COMMENTS IN THE SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORTS, 1924-1938
O.A. Tomlinson, Superintendent
Elk 50 to 75
The Yellowstone elk released outside the park boundary two years ago have been seen in the park by the fire lookouts this year. This transfer of non-native elk into the park is the chief wildlife problem at present and it is planned to eliminate these animals if possible.
Also noted in this area were several elk.
