Video: Motorcycle chased by elk

Couple chased for over a minute by curious Elk

AN elk took a liking to a motorcycle in Montana – and chased it down a highway for over a minute.

Heather Leigh and her boyfriend Glen were riding on Highway 200 between the US towns of Ovando and Missoula when they captured the animal’s advances on film.

The footage shows the couple coming to a halt on finding the elk in middle of the road. As the animal moves in for a closer look, Heather shrieks and Glen opens the throttle to pull away.

The determined elk then chases them for several hundred metres before the bike accelerates and leaves it behind.

Ms Leigh, who posted the video on YouTube, said: 'I was surprised that the elk came so close to us and I could feel a great deal of tension between us and the animal.

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

'The elk chased us for a while and I don't know when he would have stopped hadn't I told Glen to lose it.'
