The Rocky Mountain elk subspecies has been reintroduced by hunter-conservation organizations in the Appalachian region of the eastern U.S., where the now extinct Eastern elk once lived[24] After elk were reintroduced in the states of Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee, they migrated into the neighboring states of Virginia and West Virginia, and have established permanent populations there.[25] Elk have also been reintroduced to a number of other states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and islands in Alaska.[26] As of 1989, population figures for the Rocky Mountain subspecies were 782,500, and estimated numbers for all North American subspecies exceeded 1 million.[27] Prior to the European colonization of North America, there were an estimated 10 million elk on the continent.[17]
