Not only was he attacked by an elk, but now he is in trouble with the law.
In Estes Park, Colorado, elk are right in the middle of rut. All the locals in town know to stay away from big bull elk when they are out strutting around the town.
Tourists, on the other hand, tend to get a little close. For example, this tourist was filmed as got attacked by an elk.
Yep, this man tried to video himself inside of an elk herd. Instead, onlookers got footage of the guy being attacked by an elk. Sounds about right doesn’t it?
Some people just don’t learn.
This same thing happens in Yellowstone all the time. People get too close to buffalo and then end up on the news getting attacked.
Fortunately for the elk, it will not be put down for attacking the man. Instead, the man is now facing wildlife harassment charges, and rightfully so.
Let this be a lesson. Wildlife is called wild for a reason!
