Anyone who has ever hunted elk know the animals are extremely smart and adaptable. So it should be no surprise that researchers in Yellowstone National Park who studied GPS collared cow elk found that they were not afraid to wander out into open areas during times when wolves were least active – the middle of the day and at night. The study contradicts earlier work that suggested elk would entirely avoid certain areas out of fear of wolves – no matter the time of day.
