LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Colorado Parks and Wildlife shared a video of two unlikely friends playing together — a bull elk and a German Shepherd chasing each other back and forth on opposite sides of a fence.

The dog, named Trygge, belongs to a CPW officer, who says it has been playing with the elk like this for years! (Trygge – pronounced “Trig” – is a Norwegian name that means trustworthy, faithful, true, fair, loyal, honest.)

“They seem to know everyone needs to get out and enjoy the Colorado outdoors,” CPW officials tweeted.

Officials say the video was taken in recent months in Larimer County.

    At the end of the day lets be honest. This is not playful activity for the Elk. Remove that fence and we’ll see who wants to play and who wants to fight. :)
