Racine County native helps fend off elk attacking group of tourists in Colorado

NOW: Racine County native helps fend off elk attacking group of tourists in Colorado

NEXT:

RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Racine County native is being called a hero after fending off an elk while it was attacking a group of tourists in Colorado. 

Authorities say an elk was agitated by a camera flash and charged at the group. One woman was dragged to the ground.

Just as the elk backed off, city employee and Racine County native, Brian Berg, moved in with his pickup truck to help. 

"No, I've never had to do that before," Berg said. "But I saw people in trouble, and I figured I could get there quick, and I knew the best thing for me to do at that point in time was get the truck in between them."

Witnesses say a man was hurt when he tripped while trying to run away. 

The attack came two days before the town's annual elk festival.
