Sequim, Washington: 2010 Census Population, 6,606 (humans), an increase of 52% since 2000 census.
The town was given its name by the S’Klallam tribe meaning the “place for going to shoot” the elk herds and waterfowl.
Lowlands are naturally places of food for elk during winter in the mountains.
Part of the historic migratory path of the elk herd is now blocked by the local Holiday Inn Express and the Black Bear Diner, according to the Peninsula Daily News.
The most recent culling of the Dungeness Elk herd was to bring the number down from 40 to 20-25.
“We have to have a number where we are not having agricultural damage,” said Sgt. Eric Anderson of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “Twenty animals do half the damage of 40 animals.” Peninsula Daily News
