It was a different kind of rodeo. Three staffers from Colorado Parks and Wildlife joined forces with the Loveland Fire Rescue Authority to pull a cow elk out of a swimming pool. It happened in Loveland, a city about 50 miles north of Denver.

The crew used straps and rope to control and eventually lift the elk out of the water. From there, it bounded off into the wild.
