Talk about some shit you don’t see in my part of the country.
Growing up in South Carolina, I can honestly say I’ve never seen an elk in my 23-years of living. Not one time…
They’re indigenous in North Carolina, but by the 1800s the number of elk in the state was virtually zero. They have since been reintroduced and right now, an estimated 150-200 elk reside in the state. But still, they’re pretty hard to find…
Imagine growing up in a part of the world where you just casually see elk chilling on the side of the road, just minding their own business. If that’s you, the sight of elk my not give you pause, but for most of us, we’re gonna stop and take pictures.
This video comes from Yellowstone National Park, a place where folks travel from thousands of miles away to see elk. Although sometimes, you get a little more than you bargained for.
This group stumbles upon a magnificent creature who lets out a bugle and then proceeds to stand up, and start… PEEING on himself.
The ol’ Elk had been sipping the horny juice, as rutting bulls can sometimes piss on themselves in order to douse themselves in their scent and attract females.
My guy was just getting ready for mating season, and all of these onlookers were getting in the way. Thankfully we had the park ranger hilariously screaming at people to move along.
“Shot at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. The ranger soundtrack is great.”
You gotta love Yellowstone though, where else will an elk pissing on his own face cause a traffic jam.
