From this story in the (UK) Sun:
A gang of elk thieves is being hunted by police after six of the large dear (emphasis mine) were taken from a farm. The animals were taken from a field at the end of last week after rustlers were believed to have cut a gap in the boundary fence. Two more elks escaped following the raid near Yeovil, Somerset, last Thursday or Friday. A female elk weighs around 500lbs while adult males can tip the scales at more than 700lbs.
_PC Jackie Poole, of Avon and Somerset Constabulary, said: “This is an unusual theft and would have required a vehicle, and probably quite a bit of time, to complete. “I would ask people in the area at the time to cast their mind back and see if they remember seeing anything suspicious. “I am particularly interested in speaking to anyone who has been approached about elks or elk meat or anyone who saw a vehicle in the area which was capable of stealing these animals.
Oh, deer. Any bets on weather the six large dear will be found hole or in peaces?
