Elk NetworkElk Invade Colorado High School Football Field

General | April 9, 2020

There were no athletes or cheerleaders on the field. Neither were there band members or boosters in the bleachers. It wasn’t homecoming either. But the football field at Golden High School, located some 14 miles straight west of downtown Denver, recently hosted more action that any other sports field in the country.

A herd of elk poured onto the artificial turf. One onlooker said the animals stayed there for about five hours before moseying off to greener, and undoubtedly, more lush grazing land.

In case you’re wondering, the mascot of Golden High School is not a fellow wildlife species. It is a demon.
