When the chance to have a drink comes as rarely as it does to an elk,  you can hardly blame it for trying to have a little guzzle.

This elk was photographed in Evergreen. When it came upon a bottle of cabernet, it seemed like it really wanted to try some. Maybe it was the smell. Maybe it was the color. Maybe, this elk had had just about enough of a long holiday season, and just needed a drink.

Either way, it's made for a pretty entertaining share, as this video is making the viral rounds.

Even though it's nice to see an elk unwinding, I'm pretty sure the game commission and anyone else whose opinion matters would remind us, don't try to have a drink with the elk.
