Could a human ride one of these massive creatures? The story is fantasy so it can be fixed so it's not really an Elk perse, but I need info if they're tameable, if they are friendly with people, etc. I assume it would take years for people to learn how to tame these beasts, as they're so large but I know nothing of their temperment with people....ahh I'm rambling.
I looked at wiki and the articles it listed and got the usual history and other stuff you get on pages about animals. I googled 'elk domestication' and 'red deer domestication' and didn't really come up with what I'm looking for. Perhaps I'm googling it wrong?
