Per Cherokee Fisheries and Wildlife Management:

UPDATE: We have verified that the bull elk found two days ago had died of natural causes. It appears he had a birth defect that interfered with his lung and heart functions. This, combined with the stress of traversing the deep area of the river, likely caused his death. We hate to see one of these majestic animals leave us. He was regularly seen in the Birdtown area and will be very much missed by the Cherokee community. ᎠᏫ ᎡᏆ ᎤᏲ ᎠᏰᎸᏗ

*WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES*

This message is shared from the Cherokee Fisheries and Wildlife Management office:

“Earlier today (Dec. 22) we recovered a bull elk from The Oconaluftee River in Birdtown. We would like to clarify that we do not yet know the cause of death. We realize it was posted on Sam Reed’s page that it was shot. External inspection shows no clear indication of vehicular collision, gunshot wounds or any other obvious causes of mortality. The next step is to perform a full necropsy by biological staff and veterinarians. This can take time.
We appreciate the enormous support and outpouring we have received. But please wait for official results before making conclusions. We know these great animals are valued by the community and work hard to ensure their safety.
We want to thank the EBCI Natural Resource Enforcement, fire department and Sam Reed towing for their help today in recovering this animal.

Renissa McLaughlin, right, 3200 Acre Tract Community Center chairperson, presents a $900 donation recently to Wilbur Paul who accepted on behalf of the Cherokee Cancer Support Group. "Thanks to all of the volunteers who help support our community members who are struggling or have survived cancer," said McLaughlin. "This donation is made in loving memory of Kathy Owle and Myrna Climbingbear." She said the 3200 Acre Tract Community has one lease that they receive payments on twice annually. McLaughlin, along with community volunteers Rita Driver and Shirley Brady, said that they convened to decide how to utilize the funds to benefit the community, and it was decided to distribute 100 percent of the lease funds to a non-profit to ensure there is transparency in all transactions.
