I have seen several videos of people getting crossways with the elk in town. Having been in such a situation once elsewhere with the dude below, I can emphatically say it ain't fun.Our friend's live there, and they have between 20-40 elk in their yards constantly. They are not afraid of the residents at all, and can be a hazard to the children. She will not even let them play outside alone, most of the time. In the Fall when rutting, the yards and Parks are off-limits!!
