Mescalero Conservation Department rescues elk from well

New Mexico

MESCALERO, N.M. (KRQE)- An elk is doing okay after finding itself in a slippery situation in Mescalero. This comes after it somehow climbed into a large well.

Wednesday, the Mescalero Conservation Department posted a video of officers hoisting the bull over the edge. The animal appears a little disoriented at first but quickly regains its footing and trots away.
