Elk, which disappeared from Kentucky around the time of the Civil War, were reintroduced to the state in 1997. In southeastern Kentucky, their numbers have now grown to about 10,000. They generally can be found at reclaimed mining sites, but some have found their way into residents' fields and yards.
