Elk Approaches Couple Walking on Path
Occurred on September 5, 2018 / Jasper, Alberta, Canada
Info from Licensor: "We were staying in Jasper National Park in Canada for our 10-year wedding anniversary. We were walking along the river on a groomed path near where we were staying. The elk came walking around the corner and charged at us. We are not hunters, so only knew to be loud to try and scare the animal. What we didn’t know was it was rutting season so the elk are more aggressive. The elk was not responding to our yelling and continued to try and charge which is when the video ended. After that we moved to another location behind a larger tree and he followed. We finally pulled a branch off and threw it into his direction which is when he finally ran off."
