Elk NetworkNorth Carolina Officers Cut Bull Elk Free of Hammock

General | December 16, 2019

Hammocks can be downright relaxing for humans. For elk, hammocks can be dangerous or even deadly.

A man in the western portion of North Carolina recently came across a young bull elk with its antlers tangled in a hammock hanging from a large apple tree. From the looks of the damage to the ground, it was stuck there for a little while.

He called local law enforcement. Two deputies answered the call, climbed on the roof and cut the elk free.
