I saw a cow elk the other day and she had two calves with her. One calf was about twice the size as the other one. At first I thot she had somehow picked up a stray calf, but then I realized that they were the same age because they both had spots on them. Maybe the little guy is a runt, and if so he probably won't make it. A bear, mountain lion, or wolf will probably get him, but hopefully mom and the other calf will get away.
