Message Title: Elk Jerkey?????

I recently purchased (via mail order) some of the best tasing "jerky" that I have ever had. It was labeled Elk-Jerky. Upon inspecting the ingredients though, the first (and highest percentage) item was beef.

Why does elk jerky contain more beef than it does of elk?

My local store also sells wild-game jerky and snack sticks, from various animals. These too all contained more beef than that of the designated animal on the label?

Seems a bit silly to me.

Anybody have an answer for this?
