A manhunt has been underway in southern Calgary’s Menlo Park for the missing elK deer, authorities say.
It happened just after 2:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Authorities said the elK was last seen in the area of a nearby park, and there was no indication the elk was killed.
The manhunt began around 1:30 p.m., when authorities said they were notified of the missing deer.
A helicopter was used to search the area.
The missing elks carcass was located at the foot of a road.
