Wapiti Do!

Add elk to the list of unusual animals found in Lincoln backyards. An elk made its way to The Knolls (southwest of 27th and Old Cheney) yesterday. Unfortunately it was injured and scared so it had to be killed, lest it go on a residential rampage. I hope at least its meat can be saved.

I’m not sure the elk counts as the strangest animal found in The Knolls. The Missus once ran across a wayward peacock in that area. And for what it’s worth, my dad swears he once saw a cougar loping across Old Cheney just east of The Knolls. Perhaps the City should make the vacant lot at 27th and Old Cheney into a wildlife preserve.

I’m guessing Walgreens will try to buy that lot, and move the location from 35th and Old Cheney to 27th and Old Cheney to go head-to-head with CVS. Hard to think but the Williamsburg Walgreens is one of the older ones they now have in the city.
