Elk Chases Motorcycling Couple Down the Highway

Henry Baker

We wanted to share a good old-fashioned road chase on the blog before the week is out. In this video posted to YouTube, Heather Leigh and her boyfriend Leigh very nearly get in an unevenly matched fight with a bull elk. They were on a ride, and came upon a stopped truck with the elk standing nearby. The elk approaches them, getting within inches, then takes chase when they try to ride away. But the elk doesn't just give up. He follows them for a good while, in a chase that is being compared to the T-Rex in 'Jurassic Park.' Shortly after, Heather says, she told Glen to speed off, and they lost the elk. I gotta admit though, it's kinda sad seeing it fade into the distance.
