Friday Fun: “No, No, No! We’re Not Gonna Shoot It. Gimme a Break!” | Elk Tramped on Tramoline…

SnowBrains |

Ya know those nets around trampolines to keep kids from falling out?  Turns out they’re pretty great at keeping elk in.  One of the elk is just taunting the stuck guy.  Another seems concerned.  The rest are just eating away like nothing even happened.

The best part of this video is when the guy says:  “No, no, no!  We’re not gonna shoot it.  Gimme a break!”

At about 1:42 in the video the elk gets a little crazy.  He bucks, jumps, falls over, it’s funny.  Having hooves on a snowy trampoline is not ideal.

It almost seems like he was enjoying it.  As soon as the guy walks down to try to scare it out, it simply steps out and leaves.

OMG – Just when you thought you had seen it all…….and we see a lot of crazy Elk behavior here in Evergreen, CO….but this Takes The Cake for sure! We were just sitting down for our morning coffee when I watched this young elk poking his head into the entrance of the trampoline..when all of a sudden he decides to jump in for some fun! Getting out proves to be a bit harder than getting in!!!

The Elk’s friend on the outside actually looks like he wants to get in and join the fun while the Mom looks on.

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 wellbeing and not wanting to see it suffer like the poor little fox!
