Caving in the front end of a truck, an elk was killed, the morning of Thursday, May 19; not the first, or likely the last such incident of the year.

Passers by noted that an elk killed on Highway 18 that morning appeared to be a pregnant cow.

“When I went there, the elk was gone and the crash was cleared,” local conservation officer Mark Kissinger said, adding that with traffic accidents there’s typically little follow-up.

Lake Cowichan RCMP Cpl. Krista Hobday said that wildlife incidents are at about average numbers, this year.
