Viral photos catch Elk on the roof in Estes Park


ESTES PARK, Colo. (WTHR) – What is an Elk doing on the roof? That's what people want to know after photos have gone viral on social media.

Photos taken by Sally Shepherd show a large Bull Elk on the roof of a cabin.

Estes Park News shared the photos on their Facebook page.

The photos have been shared nearly 2,000 times.

According to 9 News, a woman who owns the cabin across the street from the one where the elk was says that it backs up to the mountainside, so when elk come down, it’s easy for them to step onto the roof and back onto their trail to keep walking.
