Elk NetworkColorado Wildlife Officials Still Seeking Elk with Tire Around Neck

General | August 14, 2020

Two months after first capturing a bull elk on video with a full-sized car tire around its neck, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is still hoping to find the animal and remove the obstacle.

“As it continues to grow is it not going to have the room that it has now to eat freely, to breathe and drink,” Jason Clay, CPW spokesman, told KDVR-TV “Worst-case scenario is not only you could die but another bull elk because they are fighting.”

The latest sighting came in mid-August and, like the first, was in the Arapahoe-Roosevelt National Forest near Conifer.
