Elk Wanders The Streets In Lakewood

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – It’s a sight visitors and residents in mountain towns like Estes Park are used to, but seeing an elk crossing the street in the Denver metro area? It happened on Friday.

An elk somehow made his way into the metro area and YouReporter Scott Petiya was there to capture the images.

Petiya took the following photo near Kipling Parkway.
