Olympic park rangers kill rampaging elk

By The Associated Press

PORT ANGELES, Wash. — Olympic National Park rangers have killed an elk that charged three vehicles and damaged a tent at the Hoh Rain Forest campground.

The Peninsula Daily News reports rangers started monitoring the female Roosevelt elk on Friday after it damaged a tent and charged a park vehicle. They used loud noises to scare off the elk over the weekend when it approached campers or hikers.

After it charged two more vehicles on Monday, rangers decided to kill it. A section of its brain was taken for lab tests for a possible explanation of its behavior.
