An Evergreen woman suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries in an encounter with an elk about 11 a.m. Sept. 22 on South San Souci Drive, near Dedisse Park and Troutdale Scenic Drive, about a mile from downtown Evergreen.
A neighbor who talked to the woman’s husband said she was heading back to her car after retrieving a small dog. She didn’t see the elk before it attacked her and knocked her to the ground.
A herd of about 17 elk was in the woman’s yard at the time, said the neighbor, who did not want to be identified.
