The people who rescued a wayward elk in an icy pond are being honored by PETA. Bend Police and the golf club staff at Awbrey Glen are getting an award for high profile elk rescue. Last week an elk was trapped in the pond when she broke through the ice and couldn't get out.   Alicia Woempner of PETA says they've already mailed out "PETA’s Compassionate Action Award". Woempner says: "In the past we've given them to organizations like the California Coastal Commissions for cancelling 4th of July fireworks in order to protect nesting seabirds. We've given them to an electric company for rescuing a cat who'd been stranded in a tree for 10 days; and other awards like that." The Bend Police Department and golf club stall will each receive a framed certificate and a letter of appreciation.
