Elk in NE KS?

Checked my trail cam couple days ago, and this is what I find! I know you other KS guys will share the same head scratch moment I had. Keep in mind this is very NE Kansas. No farm raised elk around the area. Guess is he escaped Fort Riley.

I think about 90 driving miles, probably 65 by elk travel.
