Bull elk suspected in horse death

…authorities were called out to a ranch on the upper Imnaha River to investigate a possible wolf depredation on a horse…No predator tracks of any kind were found near the body or in the pasture…We found numerous elk tracks in the area, and the puncture is consistent with an elk horn wound.
