Must-See Video: Montana Elk Chases Couple on Motorcycle
Pursued couple for more than a mile
A couple taking in Montana's scenic views on the back of a motorcycle were stunned when an elk approached their bike — then chased after them for more than a mile.
Heather Leigh was snapping photos of the scenery when the animal approached. After capturing several photos up close, Leigh's boyfriend drove away with the elk in hot pursuit.
"He wasn’t gonna give up," Leigh told Bill Hemmer on America's Newsroom. "He was getting faster and faster. It was exciting."
Leigh insisted she wasn't carrying any food or snacks when the elk gave chase.
"He might have liked the way my shampoo smells," she joked.
