Oh Deer: Herd of Elk Hold Up Traffic on Colorado Highway

Traffic in Evergreen, Colorado, came to a halt as a herd of elk crossed the road early on Wednesday, November 2.

Mark Kirkemier filmed the moment on Highway 74 near Elk Meadow Park as he waited for the roadway to clear.

“They migrate through our town quite often – big, beautiful animals that look after each other!” he told Storyful.

According to local reports, the area is one of the top places in the state to see elk in the fall. Credit: Mark Kirkemier via Storyful
