Quick thinking by neighborhood residents frees oddly-stuck elk.

Some residents of a Colorado neighborhood came across an odd sight the day before Christmas: an elk with its head stuck between two mailboxes. Watch these Highlands Ranch residents get the large animal free.

The odd incident even delayed the mailman who showed up while it was still stuck!

Thankfully, the quick thinking of the area residents got this wayward elk free. What an odd sight though. I can think of no good reason as to why this animal would want to put its head in there, can you? Thankfully the neighbors were able to get the elk’s head free and help it get back to the woods.

Good job to these Colorado residents on helping this trapped animal free!
