A hunter in Colorado came across two bull moose, but one was not like the other! He knew no one would believe what he saw without video. 

John F. Williams, a professional photographer, was on a hunting trip to Arapahoe National Forest when he stumbled across something incredible.

It was a moose with elk-like antlers!

Unfortunately, he didn't have his photography equipment, but he did have a cell phone. He captured the odd-looking moose on video.

Check it out for yourself:

Here's a video I found on my phone of the Moose with the set of elk antlers not the greatest video but you can see that it has antlers just like an elk. See the full story the boardwalk newspaper in Grand Lake

The Independent Journal Review reports that according to Lyle Sidener, a Colorado wildlife official, it's not that unusual:

"It is not typical, but it's not I would say unusual. We've seen it before," he said. "(Such a thing can be caused by) genetics, nutrition, injuries--things like that. There's a lot of normal variability within antler growth."

Now we know, apparently, moose can have elk-like antlers!
