Video: Young Bull Elk Struggles to Stay Awake


It’s bedtime, but this bull elk just wants five more minutes. If you’ve never seen one of these magnificent animals rock themselves to sleep, you’re in for a treat.

Having several pounds of antler on your head may make you look impressive during the rut, but it sure makes sleeping awkward. Be warned, watching the video may make you a little drowsy yourself, especially when listening to some lullaby music from Brahms.
