During his assignment in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this wildlife photographer had probably the most intense encounter in his life. The elk he was photographing began showing signs of aggression towards him which resulted in this insane video.
The guy didn’t know how to react so he just bowed his head and protected his vitals while the buck kept head butting and poking him with its antlers. It’s freaking nerve-wracking. I thought he was going to get impaled or something.
Lucky for the photographer, the park ranger showed up just in time. At least, I hope he managed to take a few photos out of this.
