Celebrating a 100 Years!!!!!
Over 400 years ago and estimated 100,000 Eastern Woodland Elk roamed freely across the state of Pennsylvania. Due to European expansion and over hunting this massive beast unfortunately became extinct. In 1913 the Pennsylvania Game Commission reintroduced Elk into the state. These Elk were a different sub-species known as the Rocky Mountain Elk. The Rocky Mountain Elk were transported to the state from Yellowstone by train, and let go to roam down in the Dents Run area. 2013 marks the 100th year of the reintroduction! Today the elk herd is estimated between 900-1000 animals, and continuing to grow!
