There's something pretty satisfying about watching bison, bear and elk charge people who are trying to take their picture. Maybe it's because we don't like to have our picture taken ourselves, but as long as the tourist or photographer isn't hurt, those videos are our happy place; we watch them when things at Distinctly Montana Editorial World Headquarters get stressful.
And this one is one of the best we've ever seen. One reason is the great, cinematic angle at which the videographer has captured it all: we see the elk, lowering it's head, approach the guy trying to take a photo. Then the guy tries to get in the car in a casual way, as if to say to the elk "listen, I know you could kick me to pieces, but look how slowly I get in my SUV." Possibly, the gentleman thinks that the elk can smell his fear. In that case, he'd better not let on that he'd prefer not to be stuck with antlers.
