This elk was seen on camera, tangled in wire on property in Gearhart.

Nicki Cartwright of Chinook, Washington, reported sighting this distressed elk in Gearhart on Wednesday.

“We’ve seen herds in that area before, but this one elk was ‘transporting’ a tomato cage!” Cartwright wrote. “As it walked among the others, it caused them to spook.”

Cartwright said that 911 was called for assistance.
