'Police Escort' Given to Elk Taking Stroll Down Wisconsin Rapids Road

A police dashcam captured an elk taking a stroll down a road in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.

The clip, posted by Wisconsin Rapids Police Department (WRPD) on October 24, shows the elk illuminated by police car lights. The car follows the elk down the road slowly, before the creature runs off the road.

The police department said, "He must have been munching on fermented leaves, cause he jumped the curb pulling out of Walgreens, weaved between two lanes of traffic, then saw the red and blue light and took off through the US Bank parking lot.

“He’s gunna have some explaining to do when he gets home,” the department added. “Our friendly WRPD Officers gave him a police escort so nobody would crash into him.” Credit: Wisconsin Rapids Police Department via Storyful
