ESTES PARK, Colo., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Shoppers at a Colorado strip mall were stunned to spot a group of unusual window-shoppers -- a bull elk and his seven female companions.

A video posted to Facebook by John Burns shows the bull bringing up the rear of the elk procession earlier this month at an outdoor shopping center in Estes Park.

Locals said it's not unusual to see elk or other wildlife from the adjacent Rocky Mountain National Park in the city, but the herd of window shoppers made for a strange scene.
