Pastor stays in character when confronted by herd bull

Matthew LaGrange, a man of the cloth from Texas, was fishing near Estes Park with his friend Dan Scates of Longmont, Colo., as a bull elk slowly herded its harem across the Big Thompson River -- directly at the anglers.

WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS -- What would you say? 

Matthew LaGrange, a man of the cloth from Texas, was fishing near Estes Park with his friend Dan Scates of Longmont, Colo., as a bull elk slowly herded its harem across the Big Thompson River -- directly at the anglers.

"I'm a pastor so I can't say what I was thinking but, It started with Holy," LaGrange said after leaving the water.

It was his first time fly fishing.
