Abstract: Elk have been part of the North American environment since the ice age. These large, social, vocal animals left British Columbia completely during the last glacial advance but repopulated both the wet coast and dry interior after the ice melted. Early explorers in eastern North America named this animal Elk, even though Europeans used the same term (spelled elch) for Moose. To avoid confusion, some people have suggested giving the North American Elk the Shawnee Indian name, wapiti, but today most people continue to use the term Elk to refer to the North American forms of the Red Deer (Cervus elaphus).
