Two animals have proved that physical differences and barriers are not hindrances in establishing a strong friendship.
A dog and elk can be seen playing chase with each other in a video posted on Twitter, even if a tall fence separates them. But how did they end up meeting each other in the first place?
For the past few years, a herd of elks has made it their yearly tradition to visit a property called Colorado Parks and Wildlife. And whenever these animals arrive at this property, one animal can’t help but feel excited and couldn’t keep its tail from wagging. His name is Trygge, the beloved dog of the property’s owner.
Trygge would not hesitate to bolt towards the fence and greet these big animals. He’s not obviously intimidated and scared by them; in fact, he wants to be as friendly as he can with these elks. He was so friendly that one of the elks expressed its interest to befriend him; it’s non-other than the elks’ herd leader — a large bull elk.
Both of them quickly became close to each other and became friends!
They never found it hard to establish a friendship, even with the tall fence that separates them. For two lovely creatures who want to spend time with each other, no barriers are tall enough to prevent them from having a lot of fun. Even with the tall fence, the best of buds still managed to create a game that would make their day fun.
In a video posted by the spokesperson of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, it can be seen that the two animals are playing chase with each other between a tall fence. It’s delightful to see how the elk is having fun chasing the obviously energetic dog. Some of the herd members were even watching at their fun time and seemed amused at what they were doing.
Bill Vogrin, the property’s spokesperson, said that the two animals truly respected each other, that even with their enjoyment, they always make it a point to distance themselves from the fence so that no one would be hurt.
The two animals’ delighting video has gained many positive responses and proved to everybody that physical differences (and even a physical barrier) are not hindrances to establish a strong friendship. With this newfound friendship, Trygge would now always have a special reason to run towards the fence every day, and that is to spend time with his bigger (but not meaner) buddy.
WATCH amazing video of a bull elk and German shepherd chasing each other playfully along a fence. They seem to know everyone needs to get out and enjoy the Colorado outdoors. This elk and dog have been playing for years, as witnessed by an @COParksWildlife officer. #wildlife pic.twitter.com/nVGcGhDqg6
