Moose Elk dies after leaping into low-flying research helicopter in Utah

An elk leaped into a research helicopter that was trying to capture it and brought down the helicopter in a collision that also killed the elk, authorities said Tuesday. The elk jumped into the chopper's tail rotor as the aircraft flew about 10 feet above ground in a mountainous part of eastern Utah, with its crew trying to drop a net on the elk, said Jared Rigby of the Wasatch County Sheriff's Office.

Moose

Between this story and the Lions killing poacher story, it feels like a viral marketing campaign for the Rock's Rampage movie...
