Left-Over Halloween Pumpkins: Don’t Trash Them, Feed The Elk
After all of that hard work carving and getting your Halloween pumpkin just right it’s now probably sitting on your front porch rotting. For most of us this is when we take the Jack O’ Lantern on that fateful walk to the garbage can, but this year you can help feed the Elk of Buhl.
Erin Miller, co-owner of the Miller Elk Farm in Buhl, says that–for whatever reason–their elk love to munch on the left-over pumpkins. Through Friday, you can drop off your left-over Halloween Pumpkins at Miller Elk Farm between 2p and 4p and get up close with the elk. Many of the animals are so tame that you can pet and hand feed them, and of course Erin is a wealth of information.
This year do something different with your left-over pumpkins. Instead of trashing them, feed the Elk of Buhl! They’ll thank you for it.
