Bull elk takes his harem to a Colorado mall

Next time you’re out shopping in the city when you’d rather be at the cottage, think about how this bull elk feels.

In the video below, a chivalrous bull elk joins his wives on a little day trip through an outdoor shopping centre in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The group ponders stopping for a pie or a fruit shake, but ultimately the females move on to do a little more window-shopping, much to the dismay of the hungry-looking male, who groans and lags behind.
