The elk herd on the Telluride Valley Floor.

Telluride's Valley Floor sits just west of Town. The protected open space is home to a gang of elk that use the land as calving and wintering grounds. Over the weekend a hunter killed an elk on property adjacent to the Valley Floor, stirring up outrage from some local residents. KOTO's Julia Caulfield has more.
