Colorado Parks and Wildlife Comments: Throughout mid June cow elk are highly protective of their calves. Portions of the trail along the south side of Lake Estes, especially the wildlife sanctuary area, are sites where the cows like to take their calves for protective cover. Cow elk will charge humans that they feel are getting too near the calves. This has been a fairly common occurrence along the trail through the nine hole golf course. On race day, June 16 it would be good to look along the trail to make certain there are no overly protective cows that may defend the trail and it would be good to forewarn participants to give cows a wide berth and do not try to run around them. The Park and Rec District does have a volunteer staff that help with elk issues at this time of year. Also CPW on call officer can be reached on that date by calling Estes PD. Hopefully a throng of running humans will make cow elk retreat but you never know. the Local District Wildlife Manager, Rick Spowart, can be contacted at 970-290-2427. Larry
