On Nov. 29, two bull elk were discovered about 15 miles NE of Monticello. During combat for breeding rights, their antlers had become entangled and locked. Due to exhaustion, one of the combatants died. Division of Wildlife Resource conservation officers responded to the scene and solved the problem by sawing off one of the antlers from the dead bull elk in order to free the survivor. The action was taken at considerable personal risk for both men. Luckily, the surviving bull was too exhausted to take any aggressive action against his rescuers.
