Update on injured elk

I got a picture of an injured elk that I posted on July 21 that was alone and the wound looked like it was healing. Here's another picture I just got, I believe of the same elk over 2 miles from the first picture. That's not far for an elk, but am suprised that the wound looks worse and the elk seems to have lost more weight on the rump.

At least it's back with a herd to give it some safety from predators.

More than likely the wound is an old archery would. Though I'm NOT against archery hunting at all. My best guess is that the arrow has broken off and has gotten infected. That cow will probably die. :/ I admit....that hit animals sometimes get away. It sucks big time but it happens unfortunately.
