This elk close encounter was just as surprising for the elk as it was for the camera guy.
So imagine you are just out enjoying a walk on a New Mexico trail when a fairly large adult bull elk is walking towards you on the same path. Well, that is exactly what happens in this close encounter video shared by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
How do you think you would react?
Even though this video is slightly funny by how that elk freaked out when it realized there was a human standing a few feet from it, hearing that bugle is like nothing else in the animal kingdom. During the rut, when elk are bugling from mountain tops to low land bottoms, it's just simply like nothing you have ever heard before.
Good thing this elk didn't think the cameraman was a threat!
