About this book

Have you ever walked into your living room to find an elk contentedly watching television? Meet Butter, human companion and elk extraordinaire at the Seventh Avenue Elk Ranch in Manning, Alberta. When ranchers, Beverly and Carson Lein chose the unique occupation of farming elk, they didn't count on adopting and inevitably falling in love with one. With a paralyzed leg and an initial refusal to nurse, Butter struggled to survive from the start. Despite Butter's slim chance of survival, Beverly loyally fought to teach the baby elk what should have been her first instincts. This was the beginning of the adventures of Butter, a wild animal with a human heart. From perilous elk births to charging bulls, life is never dull at the Lein's ranch. Experience life on an elk farm through the eyes of author Beverly Lein with An Elk in the House – a simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting story for the whole family to enjoy.
