Large herd of spotted elk

UPDATE: 2:10 p.m.

One of the owners of the property above Tower Ranch golf course is asking the public to stay off his property, after several “looky-loos” showed up on Sunday to try and get a glimpse of the herd of elk in the area.

Jessica Marak says an intruder hunter illegally shot a bull on their property earlier this year, and she’d like people to stay away.

“There is a large security fence and a huge ‘No Entry’ sign, so stay on the safe side and not on our side,” Marak said.

Dozens of moose were spotted on the fairway of Tower Ranch Golf and Country Club on Sunday morning.

Kathy Sorensen’s parents spotted the large herd roaming the fairway of the first hole of the Kelowna Golf Course around 7 a.m.

Sorensen says his parents have seen elk in the past, but never so many at the same time.

According to the Ministry of the Environment, about 1,350 of the estimated 40,000 elk in the province live in the Thompson-Okanagan area, while the majority live in the Kootenays and northern British Columbia.
