Species Account Note I was driving my car westbound on state Hwy 53 this morning when
this full grown cow elk ran in front of my car. There were probably
25-30 in the herd and at least one other ran into the side of my
car. A train was approaching from the opposite direction and
probably got them all spooked and running.
