Bull elk can be exceptionally dangerous this time of year, and the man in the video below found that out the hard way.

Bulls are aggressive in the late-summer/early-fall because they’re protecting their harem of females they’ve collected to mate with.

With that being said, any person with common sense would know not to get out of their car for a closer look and a photo of a a big angry bull elk, right? You’d think, at least.

Let’s all collectively facepalm together as we watch this nerd trip and fall right on his face as he’s trying to escape the charging bull.

Hopefully he packed an extra pair of underwear….
