I cannot believe these fools get that close to a wild animal. Hard to believe. They act like they are in Disneyland or some other human controlled domain.

I just don't get how people can be so dumb. I was just there a month ago and there are signs everywhere warning people not to approach wildlife and that many people are attacked from getting too close. Some people apparently just don't have common sense nowadays.

I shot these with the 500 mm that I rented for this trip - we were on the road edge and people and Elk were about 30-40 yd. away - I could not believe them

Common sense is the least common of all the senses.

Great Elk shots.
Now I know those people are dumb for being that close, but holy cow, they provide some serious perspective for folks like me who had no real idea how HUGE those animals are! The girl in the blue t-shirt and shorts looks tiny in comparison.

Speaking of "stupid animals," did you see yesterday's CNN report about a group of park visitors agitating a bison by throwing something at it? The video showed the bison violently charging at the person who was filming it. I was pretty upset watching this. What happens if some innocent children were around these "stupid animals" when this was taking place?

Okay, I found the video of the attack. One thing I'm really surprised is that the video doesn't mention anything about an OBJECT that was thrown at the bison in order to rile the animal. Look at it closely, and you'll see something being thrown at the animal....

Apparently the "stupid" victim wasn't aware of the fact that someone else's even worse stupid action had caused her being gored. In my opinion she should definitely take a legal action against the idiot who threw something at the bison for injuries, physical and emotional. I'm just glad that no children were around when this took place...

EDIT: Sorry to OP for my digression. I just moved the topic over to the discussion forum. Nice images captured, by the way!

The sad part in that they are passing this type of action onto their children.
