Don’t Pet The Elk!


Occupants of this vehicle were watching some cow elk with five calves. The cows were being quite protective, yet this particular cow for some reason, wandered over to this mini van and stuck its head into the window. An offer of food perhaps? Feeding wildlife is illegal and cow elk can be very dangerous animals, especially when protecting their young.

All of a sudden, an arm slowly came from the window of the vehicle to stroke the cow and scratch under her chin.

Just a warning folks, these animals are not tame and can do harm to you and your vehicles, so please, don’t feed the elk.
