Colorado Golfer Gored By Bull Elk (Punctured Kidney/Hospitalized ICU)

By

Evergreen firefighters responded to the Evergreen Golf Course Saturday night after a golfer was gored by a large bull elk. The man was in a golf cart when the elk squared off and charged. CBS reports the antler punctured his kidney and he is hospitalized in the intensive care unit but is expected to recover. A witness says the bull was charging other golf carts as well. Elk are in rut right now and bulls are very aggressive so be aware if you are in their territory and remember they can easily injure you if you get too close.

Here’s an elk goring captured on video from last year in CO:
