SALT LAKE CITY ó Authorities say a leaping elk brought down a research helicopter trying to capture the animal in the mountains of eastern Utah.
Wasatch County authorities say the elk jumped into the chopperís tail rotor as it flew about 10 feet above ground, trying to capture the animal with a net.

The two people on board werenít seriously hurt, but wildlife officials say the elk died of its injuries.

The state-contracted Texas-based crew was trying to capture and sedate the elk so they could give it a tracking collar and research its movements about 90 miles (145 kilometers) east of Salt Lake City.

Mark Hadley with the state Division of Wildlife Resources says the state helicopters are frequently used to monitor remote wildlife and this is the first such accident in Utah. (link)

The crew had launched a net it catch the animal, but when that didnít immediately work the pilot started to slow down so someone could jump out and hobble the elk, Hadley said. As the helicopter slowed down, the elk collided with the rotor, Hadley said.
The helicopter was damaged on its tail rotor, right skid and underside

bang sounds like the crew has some explaining to do.
