Colorado Elk With Barstool Around Neck: "Goofy"
March 2 , 2009.
Reports and photos have been circulating in newsrooms and blogs about a cow elk in Colorado's Eagle Valley with a barstool stuck around her neck.
District wildlife manager Craig Wescoatt was quoted in the Vail Daily as saying:
“She’s very active. The bar stool doesn’t seem to be impairing her to any great degree. She just looks kind of goofy.”
Eagle residents speculate that she may have picked up the stool at a local watering hole such as the "Brush Creek Saloon" or the "Dusty Boot."
