The little elk that could (video)

This is a great video.  Someone in Montana filmed a huge herd of elk crossing a rural road, when one of the elk just couldn’t jump the fence.  It tried and tried, and just couldn’t do it.



The stuck elk starts around the one minute mark. It’s painful to watch it try again and again, to no avail, to jump the fence.

But rest assured, the elk finally makes it. But what was most astonishing was that several of the elk appear to have waited for the straggler. I can’t believe it was anything else.  Really amazing.
