A herd of elk were seen running to avoid waves at high tide in Cannon Beach, Oregon, on January 10.
Eric Brough captured this footage while staying at a motel near the water.
In the footage, Brough can be heard telling his wife to come out and see the animals.
The video shows elk running across the sand right in front of Brough. They can be seen trying to steer clear of waves coming in several directions before continuing onward. Credit: Eric Brough via Storyful
