Will elk leave twins in different locations? We have a 3-year-old cow that we suspect had twins tonight, but we could only find one calf. We believe she had twins because she was preg tested with twins in December, and the one calf we found is quite small - at best 2/3 the size of a normal calf. The grass in her pasture is very tall. We found her birthing location, but there were no babies in site. We have no experience with twins, so was just wondering if a mother will leave them in different locations and still care for both.
