Are caribou and elk related?

    Indeed they are, as are Moose, Red Deer, Reindeer, Roe and Chital which are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae.
    “The highest concentration of large deer species in temperate North America lies in the Canadian Rocky Mountain and Columbia Mountain Regions between Alberta and British Columbia where all five North American deer species (White-tailed deer, Mule deer, Caribou, Elk, and Moose) can be found.”

    Yes, they are both members of the deer family. They are both hoofed mammals, but caribou are a little smaller, travel in larger herds, and migrate farther than elk.
