Tryfan: Humanity's legacy. We kill things.
Director_Mr: It would have been sadder if the Elk ended up goring someone and they died because it had no fear of people. Elks are big, strong and dangerous. Even when they look cute.
Maxor: So my putting a couple of small patches of corn in where I plan on deer hunting is bad? Damn and I thought baiting made it easier/less time consuming.
pedobearapproved: Should have gathered all the other elk in the park around, and then slit this elk's throat in front of them. Then they'd get the message.
mithras_angel: The article doesn't answer the most important question... How did it taste?
HotIgneous Intruder: That guy could easily have ended up without a brainpan.And I mean antler through an eye socket and RIP, end of story.
Vector R: I kept yelling for the elk to gore him in the orbital socket every time they aired that on the news. What a farking retard.
Cagey B: Tryfan: Humanity's legacy. We kill things.A completely unique phenomenon in the animal kingdom.
Sensei Can You See: Cagey B: Tryfan: Humanity's legacy. We kill things.A completely unique phenomenon in the animal kingdom.A moose showed up downtown here a couple years ago; absolutely enormous full-grown bull. Had to be seven feet tall. The cops were trying to bracket him with cars and coax him back toward the woods, but they had a lot more trouble keeping people from walking right up to it with their kids to maybe pet or feed the cute moose. Dumbasses.
George Babbitt: On further review, I take back the charge of passivity I put on the photog, and replace it with a mixed message charge that he was sending to the elk. One where he stayed on the ground in a submissive position and then also kept on putting his head down which was seen as a challenge to the elk. This whole story sucjs, I hope some bellies at least got fed off this creature as the result of the dumb photog's actions.
Canton: Yeah, you really cannot tolerate "playful butting" from an elk, or really any male animal with horns or antlers. Domestic animals can be trained. Wild animals? Not so much.This was a sad outcome, but it could have been so much worse. And the elk probably would have died either way.

Bendal: Years ago we vacationed in a state park at Panama City Beach, FL. That evening a family of raccoons showed up just on the edge of the trees. My dad thought it would be a neat photo to have him feeding them by hand. Well, we've got photos of the entire family climbing him like a tree to get to the food when he didn't feed them fast enough. Fortunately my dad didn't get chomped on by impatient raccoons, but he didn't try that again.Another night while we were there a young deer wandered into our area. My dad began feeding it leaves from some cabbage, and the deer followed him into our vacation trailer for the food. I was convinced the deer would freak out and destroy the interior, but it calmly stood there and ate cabbage, then walked to the door and jumped out. We got some photos of it too./sometimes you get lucky

Bathia_Mapes: FTA: Smokies spokeswoman Dana Soehn said the difficult decision to put the elk to death was made after efforts to keep it away from people failed. She said visitors have been feeding some of the elks, causing the wild animals to lose their fear of humans.Same goes for bears. Don't f*cking feed them because they often end up becoming nuisance animals that have to be relocated. If that fails the animals are often killed, all because some people can't get it through their thick skulls not to feed the wildlife.
