“Shooter is such a huge animal – he stands at six feet tall without his antlers, which are another four feet – and he’s pretty scary,” said Kate O’Conner, Pocatello’s education co-ordinator.
“Some of the staff don’t like going in his enclosure with him – he’s punctured car tires with his antlers before, so to see him being so gentle with a little animal was heart-warming. We all know he’s a real character, but I think he must have a soft side we didn’t know about.”
