"Nope, we're not moving", they said to me! In these situations, I can see a herd rule in action that I've read about in wildlife books. Apparently, an older cow elk is the herd leader. In my experience, it is always a cow elk who eventually leads the herd off the road.
Shyla is happy about that because she joins me for part of it. She's saying "I refuse to look at that camera because I want to RUN" in this photo.
Shyla says she's going to head for the hills if this diet continues!
