Video shows what it’s like to be chased by an elk
First Published Oct 11 2013 09:38 am • Last Updated Oct 11 2013 09:43 am

Watch as an elk gets frighteningly close to a motorcyclist and his girlfriend, then chases the couple down the highway.

Heather Leigh, who posted video of the encounter on YouTube, was filming from the back of her boyfriend Glen’s motorcycle when they came across the elk last weekend in Montana.

"I am willing to bet if Glen hadn’t hit the throttle when he had, that elk would have jumped on us," Leigh wrote.
