Elk with a tyre ‘necklace’ freed

by warritatafo

An elk who spent two years wandering around Colorado with a tyre around its neck has had a weight lifted off its shoulders by wildlife officials.

Officers resorted to tranquillising the bull elk and removing its antlers, after they were unable to cut through the steel lining of the tyre.

Scott Murdoch of Colorado Parks and Wildlife spoke to the BBC’s Maryam Moshiri about the experience.
