Handling Elk-Wapiti

Handling Elk-Wapiti

In New Zealand there are three main species of deer – Elk/Wapiti. Red deer, and Fallow deer. Of these three, the Elk/Wapiti are the largest in physical size.

This video – Handling Elk-Wapiti – was made for the Elk & Wapiti Society of New Zealand for use on their website and for educational seminars, and describes the best ways in which to handle these large and imposing animals – some of which can attain the size of a horse and weigh up to 550kgs.
