Members of The Pocatello Zoo in Idaho were confused when they noticed an elk spending an unusual amount of time near the water trough. Dr. Joy Fox was one of the officials to notice Shooter’s odd behavior and wondered what was up…
Shooter kept putting his head into the waters with unknown reason
He did it for a long time, much longer than he needed to drink.

It was for about 15 minutes like that.
Using his antlers, Shooter took something small and fuzzy out of the water.
At this point, they weren't quite sure what would happen.
Here’s a video of the heroic elk:
