Photographer has close encounter with elk

GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK, Tenn. (WVLT) - A photographer had a close encounter with an elk in the Cataloochee Valley of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

It started pretty harmless and the photographer was hoping that the elk would lose interest.

He was taking pictures of it too, but then the elk lowered his antlers and started headbutting the photographer a little harder.

The video goes on for 7 minutes. For the full video, click the link below.
