Below is a picture of an ostensible moose-deer hybrid photographed near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado in the northern part of Rocky Mountains National Park. The identity of its deer parent is unknown, but both elk (Cervus elephas) and mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) are present in the region around Red Feather Lakes, so either could potentially mate with a moose. The antlers of this animal are, however, more similar to those of a mule deer than to those of an elk. It would therefore more likely represent a hybrid between mule deer and moose.
