Video: Bull Elk Trips Over Fence, Falls to Its Death

A simple misstep cost a 6×7 bull elk its life.

Nature can be cruel, and as the following footage highlights, sometimes the simplest of tasks can have unforeseen and deadly consequences.

David Cross had the perfect vantage point to film a parade of elk crossing the road in front of him.

It looked like 26 cow elk safely made the leap over a wire fence. But when a bull elk approaches at full steam, a costly misstep finds him face-first on the ground and struggling for life.

Cross posted the following description with his video on YouTube:

“This amazing bull elk – 6×7 – tripped on a fence, planted its brow tines into the ground, flipped over, and embedded its antlers in the ground. It struggled to get free, and I could not free it. It broke its neck, and died within a few minutes of falling. It’s amazing that I saw it happen, but even more remarkable that I caught it on video.”

What a truly sad outcome for such a majestic animal!
