A couple in Evergreen, CO was sitting down to have their morning coffee when they noticed that one of the young elk wandering through their yard had gotten himself trapped on their trampoline. Like any responsible adult, they filmed it so we could all enjoy it.
At one point it looks like his sibling is trying to help him figure out what to do but it fails…for a while.
Greg Chase, who uploaded the video, had this to say about the moment when his wife suggests they shoot it:
For any viewers offended by my wife’s comment on the notion of shooting it….the only reason my wife suggested doing so was to keep it from suffering if it got too badly hurt due to the hole in the tramp. We recently watched in horror as a fox was strangled to death in our neighbor’s soccer goal netting. My reaction to her comment gave her the reality check she needed as she was a bit over-reactive due to her sensitivity to its well being and not wanting to see it suffer like the poor little fox!
