JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is warning people about aggressive elks. They want visitors to give wildlife extra space this time of year and to keep dogs on leashes.

CPW also said this means yielding to them. If you see wildlife on a well traveled path or trail, sometimes you need to avoid them, especially this time of year when deer, elk and moose will be protective of their newborns.
