Minnesota Elk Farmer One Bull Shy Of A Full Herd

Jerry Beier is an elk farmer who lives southeast of Winona. He has somewhere around 100 elk that he raises for hunting, food and medicine. He says that each morning he does a head count on all his bulls and the other morning he came up missing one bull weighing about 350 pounds.

He can’t figure where the bull went and authorities are perplexed as well. There was absolutely no signs to go by – no blood, the fence was intact, no signs of a struggle.

Beier figures someone must have sedated the animal and led him away but he doesn’t understand why anyone would do that.

Beier also says each animal he raises is worth between $12,000 and $15,000 and costs about $500 to feed.
