Elk and German Shepherd Frolic in Colorado Countryside

A German shepherd and a bull elk have become unlikely friends over the years in Larimer County, Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff say.

Footage of the pair racing along by a fence together was posted by the department’s southeast region on December 10.

The pair, staff say, “have been playing for years”.

“They seem to know everyone needs to get out and enjoy the Colorado outdoors,” the department tweeted. Credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife via Storyful
