PROVO CANYON, Utah — The Division of Wildlife Resources responded to a bull elk stuck on a cliff Tuesday.
Motorists traveling on Highway 189 in Provo Canyon could see the stuck elk from the roadway.
One passerby even estimated the elk was stuck 200 ft. above the highway.
Faith Heaton Jolley with DWR told KSL NewsRadio in an email that by the time biologists made it to the elk, he was in “extremely poor health.” She said euthanization was required.
