Elk give Idaho State Police trouble

On Saturday, Idaho State Police had a run in with a group of elk on Highway 53 near the Washington/Idaho border.

The meeting, however, was quite comical.

During the efforts to clear the elk from the roadway, one of the younger elk stuck its head in the window of Trooper Branch’s cruiser. She quickly snapped the above photo which is now going viral.

Michelle Janshen, having pulled over to let ISP deal with the situation, also pulled out her phone to capture the hilarity that ensued.
