SALT LAKE CITY — Authorities say a jumping elk introduced down a research helicopter looking to seize the animal in the mountains of japanese Utah.

Wasatch County government say the elk jumped into the chopper’s tail rotor because it flew about 10 toes above flooring, looking to seize the animal with a internet.

The two folks on board weren’t significantly harm, however flora and fauna officers say the elk died of its accidents.

The state-contracted Texas-based staff was once looking to seize and sedate the elk so they may give it a monitoring collar and research its actions about 90 miles (145 kilometers) east of Salt Lake City.

Mark Hadley with the state Division of Wildlife Resources says the state helicopters are continuously used to watch far flung flora and fauna and that is the primary such coincidence in Utah.
