A Warning to Hikers
A number of hikers were shocked this past week when they spotted a herd of dead elk buried in deep snow near Broken Top at 8,000 feet elevation.
Because the elks’ deaths were a natural occurrence, there are no plans to remove their carcasses from “No Name Lake”, but the wildlife biologists expect that scavengers will do what scavengers do now that the bodies are uncovered.
Central Oregon Daily photographer Tim Wehde can attest that it is smelly up there right now. So if you hike up to No Name Lake, he suggests keeping your distance.
