Watch: Elk herd takes over traffic in Colorado

Watch as hundreds of elk prance through downtown Estes Park. Video from 9NEWS viewer Tom Bloodgood. 12/19/17.

ESTES PARK - At first look, it seemed like perhaps Santa's reindeer were taking a route to the North Pole via Estes Park. 

But, open closer inspection, we realized this video was hundreds of elk - not reindeer - prancing through downtown Estes Park. 

Still, at least they observed traffic signals and headed through an intersection when they had a green light! 

Enjoy this video sent to us by 9NEWS viewer Tom Bloodgood!
