The Chase
Photographer: Anthony Przechera
Location: Parks near Mt Wilson - Telludide Colorado
While horseback riding up near Telluride me, my horse and dog Stormy came upon an elk in one of the open fields. The elk walked across the field toward the dog the dog walked toward the elk and when they were about 40 feet apart looking at each other (As I snapped the picture) the elk started to charge Stormy and proceeded to chase her all over the field. The dog is fast but the elk was a little faster and would have probably caught the dog and stomped the daylights out of her. So as the elk chased the dog I took off after the elk on the horse ran it down and persuaded it to end the chase and no one got hurt we went our way and the elk went her way.
