It happened at 2AM. In a well coordinated raid, an invading elk ate one of three tomato plants on the deck of Norton’s office.

A positive ID was made from a bedroom window as the elk fled the scene. The elk, part of a gang, is suspected of being a tomato addict. There was collateral damage; one flower planter suffered eating wounds from other gang members.

Earlier, the elk gang was seen casing the neighborhood (photo).

Neighborhood elk alert has been raised from orange to red.
