An elk caused a helicopter crash in Utah this month when it leaped unexpectedly and collided with the aircraft.
The helicopter was part of a wildlife research operation attempting to capture the animal with a net so it could be fitted with a tracking collar. The helicopter was flying about 10 feet off the ground when the elk jumped, hitting the tail rotor, USA Today reported.
The two occupants of the helicopter were not seriously injured but the elk died that afternoon.
