Watch: Elk Joins Kids For A Game Of Soccer In Evergreen

May 27, 2024

Viewer Shira Moffatt captured this adorable video of two young boys kicking a soccer ball back and forth with an elk that was hanging out on a ridge above the driveway where the boys were playing.

The video shows the elk curiously kicking at a red ball which then rolls down the ridge and to one of the boys.

The boy throws the ball back up the ridge. The elk immediately runs over the ball and begins sniffing at and attempting to stomp on the ball. It eventually rolls down the hill again, starting the sequence again.

A spokesperson for Colorado Parks and Wildlife said it appears the kids were staying a safe distance from the elk and that they were not harassing the animal since they didn't throw the ball directly at it.
