Video: Massive Elk Herd Jumps Fence

A YouTube user named Austin Stonnell was recently driving around Bozeman, Montana and encountered a rather large herd of elk crossing the road, possibly on a route back toward Yellowstone National Park, and filmed the migration.

The number of elk in the video is impressive, but it's the one bringing up the rear that makes the video noteworthy. While most of its brethren have no trouble figuring out it's better to go over the fence rather than through it, the last elk becomes a bit flustered.

Romans, an Idaho-based writer and photographer, covers flyfishing, bowhunting, and western big-game hunting for F&S.
