The elks in Jasper National Park wander all around in search of food. Sometimes, this puts them in a dangerous position.
Usually, the threat is automobiles.
In this traveler’s video, we see something different. As a herd of elks picnic alongside a train track and bridge, a CN freight train comes towards them.
The elk herd continues grazing. One elk on the track does not move until the last minute.
As the train gets really close, the elk decides to run and runs swiftly across the bridge.
He almost becomes a statistic.
Luckily, the elk makes it through to another day. He can go home and brag to his elk friends about how he outran a train.
