I heard an explanation that elk moving into the state at one point hurt the beaver population, and that was the tie between the elk and BLM.

At this point I think someone could actually believe that.

Whenever I hear "elk," I am reminded of this:

Interview of Hunter Thompson by P.J. O'Rourke
Q. Recently you told a college audience at Marquette University, ''George Bush should be killed. He should be stomped to death, and I'll join in.'' .... How did the students react?
A. Hey, they cheered! Then I called for a voice vote. It was two-thirds to stomp him. Meanwhile some farking maniac recorded it and took it to the Milwaukee Journal. And the U.S. attorney in Milwaukee was about to indict me on two felony charges: five years for threatening the vice-president and another five for inciting others to do it. ... I started getting calls from the Secret Service.
Q. Did you answer any of those calls?
A. Not at first, because I thought they were cranks. If it was important, they'd leave a message. And then the Secret Service showed up at the Examiner and at my lecture agency. I realized they were serious. So I called the Secret Service guy in Denver, Larry Hoppe. And he was very nice. And I said, ''What's going on here, man?'' And Hoppe said, ''Dr. Thompson, let me tell you one thing: I would advise you not to go to Washington without talking to me first.'' So I said, ''Come on over. What the hell.''
Well, we talked for a while, and by that time Hoppe knew it was a joke. I said, ''Have times changed? I've threatened to drage people around Washington by their nuts behind Oldsmobiles at a hundred miles an hour. I've advocated the slaughter of all politicians. What are the guidelines now?''
He had a pretty good sense of humor. He said, ''Well, you can't say that he should be strung up. If you say that to people, WHAP! Ten years. You can say he should be tarred and feathered.'' And I said, ''Wait a minute. I don't grasp it. What's the difference?'' And Hoppe says, ''I don't know. That's the way it is. Don't go out anymore and threaten to string George Bush up or stomp him to death.''
Q. Now, to what level of public figure does this extend? Take somebody I really hate, like Meese. Meese is not an elected official. Can I say that somebody should slice Meese open and wrap his intestines around a phone booth?
A. No, you probably can't. He should be flogged -- just not to death.
Q. What if we said Messe should be farked by an elk?
A. That's apparently harmless as hell. I believe that Ed Meese -- being a person without any honor, a fat bastard, really a congenital cheap pig in the style of and on the level of Richard Nixon -- should be locked in a large concrete basement with an elk. And the elk should be ram-fed full of acid before he's put in there.
Q. An angry, horny, acid-crazed elk.
A. Meese is naked, and the elk is huge, maybe 800 plus.
Q. Elk can be ugly customers.
A. And once they're full of acid, and they're really horny -- oh yeah, all night long!

In all fairness to the protesters, the elk did hold some controversial, borderline offensive opinions about brontosauruses.

I think I saw him playing bass in the late 70's.  It wasn't Grand Funk but some band.  I didn't like it then either

Portland has had a huge influx of America's misfits, incels, and losers flood into town in the last 15 years. They come here with no money, no skills, and mental health issues. "No one understands me..." Frankly, I am done with it I moved to the burbs three years ago, and am now considering moving out of here entirely.

I like it best when it was artistically blended with Sacred Fence.

It was a community art sculpture a mix of brass and stainless steel construction, and spray paint that represent an expression of rage and distaste for authority.

They are out in Washington County. There is a influx of people from the Midwest and American South who have flooded in because they don't "fit in" with the home predominant culture.

Hey it's ok that elk must've been racist or oppressive or something in it's long or short life so it's fine. Let's think about all those other little elks out there that get triggered every time they have to see this statue. OF A farkING ELK

Being from the northeast, my dumb stereotype about myself is that if someone asks me "what are you?" my answer would be "Irish, Polish, and Puerto Rican." My stereotype about the southeast is that the answer would be what religion you follow. My stereotype about people from the West Coast is they'll say "liberal" or "conservative."

They think she dead-named the apatosaurus, except that the brontosaurus does appear to be its own genus after all and it's not anti-Linnaean to say so.

On the other hand, the woker-than-thou thing these days is to claim that binomial is an oppressive nomenclature.

It is incredibly insensitive and male supremacist to allow a male actor to perform as a female character. It is in essence a declaration that a woman's place is in the kitchen. Why are you supporting such oppressive behavior?
