A bull elk with a tire around his neck has been spotted on multiple wildlife cameras in Conifer, Colorado. Colorado Park & Wildlife staff are hoping that someone is able to locate the elk so that they can help free him from the tire before the fall rut.

While the elk doesn’t seem to be in pain, it can’t be comfortable to walk around with all that extra weight hanging from his neck.

If you happen to see the elk, Colorado Park & Wildlife urges you to call them right away. Even if he runs off before you get a chance to call, letting them know where he was last seen can give them some insight into where he may be headed.

During the fall rut, male elk battle with one another for the affection of female elk. This often results in the male elk becoming entangled with one another, potentially dying if they are not able to free themselves from each other’s antlers.

Being stuck to another elk could be especially dangerous for an elk with a tire around his neck.

If you spot the elk, be sure to reach out to Colorado Park & Wildlife right away.
