Video of the Day: Elk trapped on a trampoline

Animals do the darnedest things, and in some cases (like the incident of the bear seen pushing a dumpster that's become a popular GIF) in happens on camera.

That's true of an elk who got trapped on a trampoline in Evergreen, where Greg Chase and his wife caught the scene on video shared with 9News. But is the station's headline -- "Elk has a fun time on trampoline" -- accurate? Or was the elk actually pissed off, in a particularly elk-like way, at his stumbling and fumbling before Chase lured him out? Decide for yourself below.
