Watch this massive 7x9 bull elk absolutely got his butt kicked by a stronger and tougher bull in front of a gigantic crowd in Canada's Jasper National Park.
You never know what you'll see during the elk rut. These lucky tourists in Canada's Jasper National Park got to see this enormous 7x9 bull elk get his butt whipped by another elk. Check out just how big of a rack the loser had. That just goes to show that even a really high-scoring bull will not necessarily win a fight with another elk.
Watch the video to see what I mean.

Pretty impressive battle, right? You see how they pushed that tree over like it was nothing?
There are a number of reasons that big 7x9 bull elk lost: he could have been older and weaker than the other bull, he could have been just plain worn out from the rut, or the other bull might just have been tougher and meaner. In any case, that's too bad for the big bull. Though the other bull has a great rack as well, it would be a real shame if 7x9 bull didn't get a chance to pass on those incredible genes.
