Gearhart Elk Herd

For more than a decade, a herd of elk has been hanging out in and around the up-scale coastal town of Gearhart, browsing the golf course and even taking refreshing dips in the surf. But as the herd is growing, so are concerns about safety and property destruction. We talk to the locals and wildlife experts about why the elk come here, whether they're a nuisance or an opportunity.
