Special bond between man and elk he’s raised for nearly 30 years
ESTES PARK — An Estes Park man has shared a special bond with an elk he rescued and rehabilitated for nearly 30 years. The man’s name is Lee Kemper and the elk’s name is ‘Annie’. They’re best friends. “She’s a sweetheart. She’s a loving animal,” Kemper explained. Kemper met Annie when she was five days old. Since then he’s taken care of her on his farm in Estes Park.
