An elk head peering from an east-side garage was too much temptation for somebody.

An elderly man said the head, worth $500, was hanging in his garage and was discovered missing about two weeks ago. He told officers he often leaves the garage open, which would expose the trophy to view from the street.The elk head is described as tall but narrow with a five- or six-point rack on either side. The right eye was missing on the very large head, said a police report.
