Friendly Elk Hangs Out With Hunters


"Elliot the Elk" is looking for a new home after befriending a pair of hunters and "hanging out" with them for several days in the Idaho wilderness.

(KTVB)   A friendly elk named Elliot is wandering around the Treasure Valley near Boise, Idaho.

One family recently welcomed Elliot when he walked into their camp site and stayed a while.

Last month, Elliot encountered Trevor Chadwick and his family when he wandered into their camp near Bear Valley.

Elliot was taken in by some people in Sweet, Idaho in the spring of 2018 as a calf and raised among humans, and now has little fear of strangers.
