Over the past few weeks, a lot of people have noticed an increase in the wildlife they're spotting while stuck inside. Unfortunately, not all of that wildlife is having a good time.

A Larimer County employee discovered a bull elk hopelessly entangled in volleyball net that had manged to wrap around his snout, antlers and front hoof on a county road outside of Estes Park, according to a Colorado Parks and Wildlife Facebook post.

Luckily, a response team was able free the bull of the netting and also request that we put some of our newly-acquired stay-at-home time to good use:

Please remember to take a look around your yard or property and remove any items that wildlife could get caught up in.
