21 Elk Drown in Echo Canyon Reservoir

Last weekend was tragic for a herd of 21 elk that drowned after ice on the surface of the Echo Canyon Reservoir broke due to their collective weight. Cracking of the ice dropped the herd into the frigid water below.

As per officials the elk were only 50 feet from the shore of the lake, which lies about five miles south of Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
