Elk herds delay highway traffic in Bitterroot


    Stuart Jackson captures video of an elk herd crossing a Bitterroot Valley highway.

    Drivers are reporting elk herds crossing a number of highways and roads in the Bitterroot Valley, south of Missoula.

    Stuart Jackson gave NBC Montana permission to share video he recently shot of elk stopping a number of vehicles.

    The Ravalli County Sheriff's Office often puts out alerts to watch out for elk crossing the roadways.

    Recently, alerts have gone out about elk herds on Eastside Highway near Corvallis, and Highway 93, south of Hamilton, near the gas station in Lone Pine.

    No recent accidents have been reported.
