The article explains the presence of elks at the Bellwood Quartermaster Depot in Richmond, Virginia. It provides the fact that when the U.S. Army bought the 647-acre Bellwood Manor in 1941 from its former owner Frank Bellwood for $186,000, the sales agreement included a provision that some elk always would be kept on the property. It describes the efforts by the Army to fulfill the agreement, by reserving a twenty-acre pasture for the elks.
