Elk In North Carolina Gets Tangled Up In Homeowner's Hammock


Good morning. I'm Noel King. A man in Maggie Valley, N.C., often gets backyard visitors. Jim Beaver told WLOS-TV this Thanksgiving it was a bull elk. Beaver said elk like to play with the hammock on his apple tree and sometimes take the fruit. This time an elk's antlers got stuck, and a sheriff's corporal had to climb up to the roof to cut it loose. Since then, it has reportedly come back to the house, still wearing pieces of hammock on its head. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
