Bull elk causes a Yellowstone tourist to fall on their face.

There’s not much to detail in this video other than what the title states ‘dumbest animals in Yellowstone have two legs’. So true, so true. It appears this tourist decided getting close to a herd of elk was a good idea, which was obviously wrong. A bull elk charged at him, causing the guy to stumble and, eventually, fall on his face. Good stuff bull elk, good stuff.

Believe it or not, the animals in Yellowstone are wild animals, and distance must be kept to remain safe. Yellowstone National Park asks that guests stay at least 25 yards from bison, elk, and most other animals, while giving at least 100 yards for wolves and bears. Violating those distances can get you in some serious trouble, both with the rangers and with the animals.
