So How Does an Elk Get a Tire Around Its Neck?
By CJ Lotz
There’s a chance this cow elk near Morrison, Colo., is pregnant, so authorities don’t want to tranquilize her in case she’s carrying a calf. But locals say accidentally-decorated elk are a common sight in Colorado.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife is aware of an elk that has had a bird feeder around its neck, another has a tomato cage. In the past, 7NEWS has seen pictures of several elk with Christmas lights, a swing and even a barstool around their necks.
