To put it simply, it was a sign of the seasons in Estes Park, Colorado, and a couple of bull elk took full advantage of it. They playfully dueled amidst a Halloween display.
Marsha Hobert captured it on video and wrote this on her Facebook page: “So entertaining to watch these two bulls fight over the pumpkins outside an Estes Park hotel that was decorated for Halloween.
About 15 seconds into the video, one of the bulls propelled a pumpkin down a small hill with its antler and both elk stopped to watch it.
