Colorado ranchers free entangled elk

It took several men and some bolt cutters to break up a fight in Colorado.

That's because the fight was between two elk who got tangled up in a bunch of barbed wire.

A rancher discovered the pair.

While he waited for the division of wildlife to arrive, he and several others took matters into their own hands.

The men roped the elk and held them down.

The ranchers then took turns using bolt cutters and pliers to cut loose the barbed wire.

When the elk were freed, the men stood back and watched as the animals got up and ran away.

Neither animal appeared to be hurt, but one did leave with a ball of barbed wire still wrapped around his antlers.
