Park Staffer Attacked By Elk in Estes Park, Colorado

Estes Park Elk Attack

Just another day on the job at Estes Park.

Estes Park, Coloardo is known for some fantastic scenery. It also has no shortage of amazing wildlife. Staffers and park visitors know this all to well, especially the guy changing the trash can liners on this fateful day.

Estes Park this morning

The video, originally posted to Facebook by Cynthia Thate, depicts an impressive bull elk who took an interest to the garbage man that morning. Using nothing but a small podium as his defense, the park staffer remained unharmed through the event. He was eventually able to return to his duties after another gentleman helped scare off the massive elk.
