Looks like these elks got twisted up and it led to their demise.

Wow! What a find! Definitely was a bad deal for the elk.

Yeah it is a shame. There are reports of whitetails here that have gotten their antlers intertwined during the rut and died. We have had a couple of our White Texas Dall rams get their horns stuck and had to flip one over on his back to basically unscrew the horns from each other. Craziest thing we ever had happen but we are lucky to try to check on them pretty regular. These were at a rented pasture and the people living there called us. Hate to see it in the wild as you know they just starve or die from lack of water. But, that is past of nature/life.

As bad as that sucks for the animals, that would be one heck of a cool mount.
