Bull Elk Wins Game of Chicken With a Car in Colorado’s RMNP
Playing chicken is a game that takes a lot of guts to win. In this case, a bull elk and a car squared off in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) to see who would move off the road first.
This wasn't one of those car driving fast with little reaction time scenarios. It was a slow, deliberate competition that left the occupants of the car with only two options - lose the game or wreck the car.
Following the win, the elk stayed on the road slowly walking towards his next competitor. I don't know who chickened out in that match-up, but I'm guessing it wasn't the elk.
