Video: Dueling elk trash warning sign

By Russ and Tiña De Maris

“The deer and the antelope play” – but in California’s Redwood National Park, the elk don’t mess around. To keep park visitors safe, rangers have posted warning signs reminding guests not to approach those “Dangerous Wild Elk.”

Apparently a couple of elk decided to show just how serious the matter can be – and, in the process, demolished one of those warning signs. A recent YouTube post by a campground host underscores the point by showing the reveling Roosevelt elk taking after each other, with the sign as collateral damage and eventually getting completely knocked off the posts.

Interesting how they worked around the sign, possibly their contact with it made a “good” sound.
RE: previous comments. Relax. They shot what they could. There’s no “Take 2”, he/she could/should not move, gotten closer, taken a better angle, better camera perspective. He/she got what they got and shared. Want better? Go do it yourself

What a waste of my tax dollars, signs to warn against wild animals in their habitat…just stop already. Animals are dangerous, duh.

Why show the video at all if you don’t show the whole thing. Nothing was demolished.

Why shoot the video in vertical mode? Imagine how much more detail there would be if the video had been shot in horizontal. Don’t be lazy, turn the phone to horizontal. That’s the way most computer screens are laid out, as well as tablets.
