A bull elk visits the home of a Colorado man multiple times, once ringing his doorbell, as captured by his porch camera.

ESTES PARK, Colorado (KGO) -- A man in Colorado has an unusual house guest that just keeps coming back.

A bull elk has been caught on a doorbell camera, not once, but twice, sniffing around and investigating this front porch in Estes Park.

Homeowner James Jonell says the first time the animal paid a visit, it rang the doorbell before walking away.

Jonell says he knows it's the same elk because of its distinctive royal antlers.

He named his furry visitor Bruno.
