Let's just say I work with nature and the public. Lots of female elk have either just calved or are about to. Today I briefly explained that to one man who said (from what I can tell, almost angrily), "Those filthy girls." I ignored that and went on to say he might also see some young males out and about and he just kept repeating, "They're filthy. Those dirty, filthy girls." Umm...about elk. What?
