Elk NetworkWatch: Elk vs. Couch Cushion

General | April 5, 2018

Maybe it was just trying to remove an oversized piece of little from the roadway. Or maybe it just plain doesn’t like couch cushions.

Either way, Warren Johnson, a RMEF member and owner-operator of Hells-A-Roarin’ Outfitters who lives in Montana just outside the entrance to Yellowstone Park, recorded this unique video of a young bull elk and posted the following on his Facebook page.

I was headed right out of Gardiner to check my horses when I came across this two year old bull elk fighting with s couch cushion. I’ve got hundreds of videos of cool little things like this in the wild and of wild animals in civilization . As the mountain men said, “the Rocky Mountains are the marrow of the earth.” and I live right in the center of it. Best place for a good life, tough, rugged, but beautiful and full of little surprises like this. Have a great day! Respectfully Warren
