BERTHOUD, Colo. (CBS4) – A Colorado woman shared video of an unusual interaction between an bull elk and one of her mares at her home near Berthoud.
“This morning a buck decided to get a little frisky with our mare. She entertained him briefly, but was wishing we would come out and feed her,” Meredith Hutmacher said.READ MORE: Hunting, Fishing Applications Open In Colorado
She says she didn’t feed the mare until the elk left her alone.
“This is the second time. I think it may be the same bull elk. Maybe he is recruiting for his harem? Luckily, our mare is super easy. It didn’t bother her at all.”READ MORE: Stimulus Check Update: Some May See Even More Money From Potential Economic Relief Package
Hutmacher says she’s seen tracks near the corral before, adding the elk have been around since early December.
