Quite literally. . .
You have to wonder what's going on in the elk's little male, pubescent mind. Clearly, it's not really aggression. If 500 or more lbs of angry pot roast equipped with long spearing antlers chose to hurt the photographer, it could do so, in a flash. It looks more like play that two young bull elk might try; practice for the mating wars, so to speak. But why would it choose to do so with a random photographer?
