Elk advisory: herd now near Port Williams Road

Clallam County Sheriff's Dept. advisory: Update on Sequim Elk Herd Movement - The Elk crossed West Sequim Bay Rd and are back in the agricultural areas NW of Sequim.

Tim Cullinan, Wildlife Program Coordinator, provided the following update: 

Late yesterday morning (1/2/13) the elk crossed West Sequim Bay Road and continued moving north through the Bell Creek Valley. By nightfall they were back in their old haunts in the agricultural areas northwest of Sequim. 

At 7:00 this morning the elk were in the fields near the intersection of Schmuck Road and Port Williams Road, about 2 miles north of Highway 101. 

So, at least for now, the elk are in a safe place and pose no danger to traffic on the highway.
