It’s that time of year again, as the trees begin to change color and crisp cool nights set in, so begins the annual elk rut. These majestic beauties are best enjoyed at a safe distance.
“The elk rut is underway, and aggressive bulls have begun to charge cars and people. As you’ll see in the video, it’s a dangerous time to approach elk, even in a vehicle!”
According to Yellowstone National Park:
The park is filled natural wonders that are also potential hazards. Special rules apply here, and these rules exist in order to protect you as well as the park you plan to enjoy.
Everyone who visits Yellowstone should be familiar with the following regulations:
The animals here are wild and should never be approached, no matter how calm they appear to be. Always stay at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards (23 m) away from all other animals, including bison and elk. Never leave small children unattended near wild animals.
In other Yellowstone news, it snowed Monday morning!
The Elk Rut is already underway in portions of the Rocky Mountains. This out of Estes Park, CO.
It's that time of year again in Estes Park, Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park when the soundtrack switches to a chorus of bugling elk. WeatherNationTV.com – Video: Estes Park News, Inc.
