Seen in a chart

"I feel SO relaxed right now."

Shouldn't that be, the patient is so deceased! That's enough Diazepam to knock out an elephant.

I'd like to make some appointments, please.

NOT, I repeat, NOT saying this particular anxiolytic is specifically as indicated ... but for some other animal species, higher doses are required on a weight-basis though it'd seem Dr G is observing charting for human patients, since the ordered route of administration is per os, and not via dart gun.

" ... the elk on Afognak Island are Roosevelt elk that attain much higher body weights than obtained in other places in the wild" ... [recommended adult female mid-summer dose is higher than recommended for wild elk than in the rest of the U.S. and Canada]. "At this time of year adult cows average 700 lbs. and range up to 850 lbs. Adult males may get up to 1300 lbs."

Who knew elk were so anxious?

Uh, I'll take a hit of that. Should relax the old neck muscles, huh?

Elk on Afognak were brought in from Washington to settle amongst the brown bears (that feast on Pacific salmon--who's not heard of Kodiak king salmon runs?) in the early 1900s for 'big' game hunting. Hopefully Afognak elk should not be too concerned about rogue deer from infected ranches, say from Idaho, or Indiana.


Elk anxiety might be more of a concern at one of the many elk farms in the rest of the USA where it's big business for those involved with interbreeding for 'sport-hunters' that like to shoot fenced-in elk with massive racks, and also collection of 'medicinal' antler velvet. Elk and deer farms require special fences. Communicable diseases such as bovine tuberculosis which affects cattle, and transmission of bovine spongiform encephalopathy to humans may indicate humans are not protected from economic or human effects resulting from greed, selfishness, and power run amok.
