This bull face-planting into the dirt is the perfect metaphor for 2020.
Let's face it, 2020 has been rough on all of us. Coronavirus, the heated political climate and just the overall strangeness of a most unusual year has us all exhausted and asking: 'Is it over yet?' The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources recently posted a clip that acts as the perfect metaphor for the wildest year we can remember.
Fortunately, someone was there with a camera to catch the whole thing on video and we now present to you this bull's truly hilarious face plant. It's sure to give you a chuckle in an otherwise hard year.
We admit, we watched this back at least a dozen times and could not stop laughing at this poor bull's plight. At least he was not hurt in this tumble. We have seen other elk leaps that did not end quite so smoothly.
Hey, we give that face plant a 10 out of 10. We have seen a few elk tumbles here at Wide Open Spaces in recent years. This is one is by far the funniest and just what we needed in the middle of a long and hard work week. Hey, to his credit, he made one heck of a recovery!
For a little more context on this video, it was shot by Utah DWR biologist Brian Maxfield from his vehicle. The elk rut is in full swing in Utah right now and the post says this bull was hot on the trail of a cow when he made his spectacular blunder. Let's hope his lady friend wasn't watching, how embarrassing!
