Wildlife officials keep an eye on elk's tire 'necklace'

DENVER (CNN/CBS46) -

Wildlife officials in Denver are keeping an eye on an elk that could be in danger.

Residents in the area say the elk has been wearing a tire around its neck for weeks.

Everyone wants to know, how did the tire get there?

One woman suggested maybe some kids did it.

Wildlife officials told KMGH the elk may be pregnant so they don't want to tranquilize the animal unless it's necessary.
