The Merriam's elk is an extinct subspecies of elk once found in the arid lands of the southwestern United States, predominantly Arizona. Uncontrolled hunting and cattle grazing since the arrival of Europeans had driven the subspecies into extinction around the beginning of the 20th century, with the exact presumed date being 1906.
