Advisory: Sequim Elk herd on the move again

— image credit:

Update provided by the Clallam County Sheriff's Dept.

This morning the Sequim elk are in the field across Washington Street from the Holiday Inn & Black Bear Diner. They’ve been hanging out near the highway for the past 24 hours. Yesterday they spent most of the day in the woods just north of the Johnson Creek bridge on the Olympic Discovery Trail. 

This behavior suggests that the elk may be getting ready to cross Highway 101 again. Motorists should be extra cautious in the stretch of highway between Sequim Avenue and the Sequim Bay Lodge motel (intersection of West Sequim Bay Road). 

At last count, there were 38 elk in the herd.
