Elk charges at a photographer who got too close.

This tourist photographer learned the hard way why getting close to elk is a bad idea. According to the video description, people were getting way too close to this elk for 15 minutes, causing a fair amount of undue stress. Don’t be that person, give elk plenty of space. If they appear jumpy and stressed, you’re too close. At least 50 yards is a good place to start.

This went on for 15 minutes, the Male Elk was so stressed out, it was sad..

I do think wishing for his death is a bit intense. But too many people think it’s okay to get right up next to these wild animals, and that’s not cool.
