Wandering elk discovers swingset is no fun

-A A +A
By Vicky Gits

Wildlife officers last Thursday morning chased a 300-pound elk with half a swingset tangled in its antlers before finally subduing the animal and removing the hardware headgear.

The officers pursued the elk for half a mile before shooting it with a tranquilizer gun at 29826 Bronco Road, where it collapsed about 11:15 a.m.

The elk had a green baby seat, some rope and a 5-foot-long piece of timber snagged in its four-point antlers after grazing too close to some play equipment, probably in the Tanoa subdivision.
