Today’s video is yet another prime example of just how athletic deer and elk are.

This couple was driving down a country road when an elk began running alongside.

Like any sane driver, he slows down to let the animal cross. But elk don’t always do the sane thing, and, true to form, this one decides to leap over the truck’s front end instead of running into the open field off to the right.

Elk are odd creatures. But you can’t underestimate that athleticism.
