A large Bull Elk walked into an Estes Park gift shop…. No joke!

The owner of the Water Wheel Gift Corner on West Elkhorn Avenue in Estes Park was surprised when a bull elk wandered in the front door to his shop and stayed for about 45 minutes. Then it wandered out... and then back into the store, but was eventually lured out with apples. No word on which T Shirt the elk liked the most.

The owner was scared but managed to get video that he addressed with:

Hi!
