Elk gets tangled up in red hammock

MAGGIE VALLEY, NORTH CAROLINA (AP) — An elk is running around western North Carolina with a shredded hammock on its head, and apparently a love of apples is to blame. News outlets report Jim Beaver told the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office that an elk was stuck in his yard with its antlers tangled up in a hammock. The sheriff’s office on Facebook said Cpl Ken Stiles climbed onto the roof, cut the hammock and freed the animal. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
