You know you need a crossing guard when...

A herd of elk can be a formidable bunch, and when they feel the need to cross pavement, who are we to try to stop them.

The following cell phone footage, which shows a large group of elk jay walking Highway U.S. 36 between Boulder and Lyons, Colorado, is an astonishing sight to be seen.

Feast your eyes on an elk jam at its finest:

Who else spotted the bulls in that bunch? Keeping the ladies close and looking out for them no doubt.

If you have to get stuck in a traffic jam, we can definitely think of less exciting ones to sit still idling for.
