Bull Elk Nearly Runs Over Yellowstone Tourists Who Can’t Take The Hint

Bull elk

I don’t want to see anyone get hurt, but people like this are kinda asking for it…

Elk are one of the largest species of deer, and can grow to be up to 5.5 feet at the shoulder and weigh up to 1,000 pounds. Elk antlers are massive and can grow up to 4 feet long and weigh up to 40 pounds.

Male elk grow antlers each year in preparation for the fall rut, and use them to fight other males for dominance over harems of cows. After the mating season is over, elk will shed their antlers and grow a new set the following year.

Yellowstone National Park is one of the best places in the world to see wild elk up close. The park is home to an estimated 10,000-20,000 elk, making it one of the largest remaining populations.

Elk are generally docile and do not pose a threat to humans, but can become aggressive if they feel threatened or cornered. Basically, just stay away from them if you can and you will be okay.

These people didn’t get the memo, even though I know they read it a million times being in Yellowstone.

They are seen trying to get a picture next to a bunch of elk, and it doesn’t take long for a massive bull to notice them… they don’t even flinch.

The bull charges in to scare them off causing the man to run, however the woman waits before deciding she could be in danger. You know, just gonna call the bluff of an 800-pound beast with sharp spikes sticking out of his head.

The big bull puts his antlers down one more time and that’s enough for he to get out of there, although, at a leisurely pace.

They got off easy… and don’t even know it.

Don’t be like these people.
