If you live in Colorado, there’s a good chance you’ll see wildlife in your backyard.

But on your trampoline? That doesn’t happen very often.

A family from Evergreen watched Monday morning as an elk climbed on to their trampoline, but then had trouble getting off.

Of course, they captured the whole thing on video. Watch the entire clip to hear the family’s commentary and to see the elk make his escape.
