It was an unusual site in the Awbrey Glen Golf Course early Tuesday morning. "We had a elk that was on the golf course, off of hole number 12 on Putnam Drive that had decided it was going to try to walk across the pond on hole number 12 near the green. And she fell through the ice and was stranded in the middle of the pond." Keith Kessaris with Awbrey Glen Golf Club says the elk was getting tired trying to find a way out of the pond. The elk was up to her neck in icy water. It took Bend City crews, Bend Police and Awbrey Glen workers combining their efforts to rescue the elk out of the pond. They got a small boat and were able to lasso the elk. Then, using another rope tied to the boat, they were able pull her out of the water. The who incident took about an hour. The good news is no one, including the elk was hurt in this incident. Kessaris says about three years ago, a heard of about 30 elk discovered the abundant food in Awbrey Glen and have come down every winter.
