Gored on the Green: Elk encounter injures golfer
(NBC NEWS) – A Colorado man is recovering after a painful encounter with a bull elk on an Evergreen, Colorado golf course. The plan was to play one last game on a nice course before the weather changed. Unfortunately for Zac Bornhoft’s group, the course had an unexpected hazard. Denver Parks and Recreation, which oversees the course, says park rangers and staff alert golfers to avoid specific holes or leave their balls when elk are on the course. Bornhoft says he hopes what happened to him will motivate others to learn what to do in similar situations.
