An inquisitive elk has been captured on video chasing down two motorcyclists who were out for a ride.

 Heather Leigh said she and her boyfriend, Glen, had slowed down after seeing a truck stopped on the Montana’s scenic Highway 200 between the US towns of Ovando and Missoula.

It was only then that they realised the large male elk had come out to take a closer look at the traffic and soon took a particular interest in their bike.

After coming in to take a closer look at the couple, Glen, who was driving the motorbike, decided to hit the throttle to escape the stag’s advances.

It is then shown to chase the couple for well over a minute before they eventually speed away.

    It looks like there was a smaller animal running further back behind the Elk, also. I never see things like this, myself, but I think I would have stayed put when the Elk approached the motorcycle.

    It might have seen it's reflection in the wind screen and it being much smaller than the cars, well you never know what he was thinking. I would never have allowed it to get that close to begin with. And for them to go slower so it could chase them, just goes to show , not many brains used that day.
