The Manitoban elk (Cervus canadensis manitobensis) is a subspecies of elk found in the Midwestern United States (specifically North Dakota) and the southern regions of Canada's prairie provinces (specifically Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and north-central Alberta).[2][3][4] Compared to the Rocky Mountain elk, it is larger in body size, but has smaller antlers. The subspecies was driven into near extinction by 1900, but has recovered since then.
