EVERGREEN, Co. (9NEWS)- Greg Chase from Evergreen sent in this phenomenal video to 9NEWS on Monday of an elk who got trapped in their trampoline.

"We were just sitting down for our morning coffee when I watched this young cow elk poking his head into the entrance of the trampoline," Chase said. "When all of a sudden, he decides to jump in for some fun! Getting out proves to be a bit harder than getting in!!!"

The elk gathered around the trampoline, seeming to try and guide the trapped elk out of the trampoline.

At one point, Chase's wife jokingly suggests shooting it. Chase said the only reason she suggested that was to "keep it from suffering if it got too badly hurt due to the hole in the tramp. We recently watched in horror as a fox was strangled to death in our neighbor's soccer goal netting."
