Huge Elk Herd Gathers Outside Home In Oregon Town

A woman filmed a large herd of elk that gathered at a neighbor’s home in Gearhart, Oregon this past summer. The amazing moment began when her father was taking photos of ten elk by their home. She told ViralHog:

“This is a local elk herd but seeing them this close together does not happen often (I’ve never seen another video or picture before). My dad had been taking pictures of a smaller group of ten elk and walked back to our house and said ‘you might want to go back out because the elk seem to be gathering.'”

She walked a few blocks down the street with her mom and sister and that’s when they encountered the larger herd. “We were met with a line of elk 10 yards in front of us. They were standing shoulder to shoulder across the entire street about 15 wide and 10 deep. It was very intimidating so we immediately backed up around the corner and stood behind a parked car. A minute later, the elk all started walking towards us and gathered in the front yard as seen in the video.”
