"Even when feeding, he [the elk] never seems to forget his dignity."

"The elk walks among his herd as if there is nothing in the sky nor on earth that is his equal. And others of the herd seem to think so. Even when feeding, he never seems to forget his dignity. With every mouthful of food, up goes his head as he watches over his herd."
Standing Bear, Lakota
