Following an extensive veterinary examination of injuries sustained from another animal in his elk herd, the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo had the sad responsibility on Tuesday of euthanizing one of the elk by the name of Winston. 

“We are all heartbroken by this,” says Tim Sinclair-Smith, Zoo Manager.  “We noticed Winston displayed some lameness and discovered he’d been injured near the right shoulder – likely by a kick from one of the other animals in the herd.  This can happen among animals living in a herd – it’s unfortunate but something that just occurs in nature.”
