An elk with netting tangled in its antlers has caught the attention of Estes Park residents and social media. But local wildlife officials are hesitant to intervene.
On Monday, bystanders captured video of the elk with a mass of plastic netting caught in its antlers. Jason Clay with Colorado Parks and Wildlife said his office started receiving several calls from people who were concerned about the animal. But Clay said that for now, it’s best to leave the animal alone.
