Elk rescued from Christmas lights

5 posts in this topic

An elk that got tangled up in some Christmas lights and decorations put on an unusual holiday display this week for Banff residents.

The bull elk was spotted wandering near the Alberta mountain town with lights and candy cane ornaments strung up in his antlers.

Poor thing...glad they were able to help him out.

I must admit though, he did look rather festive with the lights/decorations.

According to my sources, the elk is Randolph, proud cousin of Rudolph the reindeer and he does this every year after the office party. It's his party-piece, kinda.

Some elks will do anything to gain attention.

Poor thing. He does seem a tad cheesed though. But apparently this sort of thing is happening more frequently as more land is claimed for development so it is inevitable that such encounters will increase in frequency and perhaps severity.

Maybe the elk was attracted by all the lights?
