This pissed off elk tells these tourists to get out of his space.
A bull elk in rut is nothing to mess around with.
This big guy is wound up searching for females, and seemingly tired of being stared at and harassed by tourists. Watch what he does about it in this clip owned by Paul Chalfant and posted on the YellowstoneNPS YouTube Channel.
Sometimes it is nice to stop and observe the pure beauty of nature. This bull elk is truly stunning and many tourists took a minute to watch him. Unfortunately, some were pushy enough to harass him, and he grew tired of the visitors.
These cars definitely suffered some damage, but we were more concerned about his antlers and his health than the cars he was attacking!
