Yeah, that head nod seemed to be a "keep coming, and it's on" kind of gesture. Dude's lucky he didn't go for the driver side window.

When one of those dudes is clopping their hooves like that, it means do not fark with them.

Yeah, that's a new tire, straight into the sidewall. Don't mess with bull elk in rut, they're stupid and aggressive.

Lord. A single male with a full rack in the winter means a rutting male. He's ready to go 24/7 until rutting season ends. This guy is lucky he didn't point those antlers into the window.

CSB: Ages and ages ago my Aunt had an old lincoln mark whatever she was very fond of. One night whilst driving on a country road she came around a blind corner and came very very close to hitting a group of deer. Luckily she did manage to stop in time.
One of the deer had reared up on its hind legs in the commotion, and when it came back down to all fours, one of its legs came down and punched through the plastic fairing in the little gap between the Lincolns front bumper & the rest of the front end.
The deer caught in her bumper started to freak out, this big metal monster had it by the leg. The other deer in the group all took it upon themselves to attack the aggressor. Poor Auntie was just trapped there helplessly while 6-8 deer beat the hell out of her car from all sides.
Eventually the first deer did get its leg free & they all fled into the woods, but poor aunties lincoln was never the same again.

When I lived in Jasper, Alberta I had problems with the elk sticking their head in my dorm window to lick out my microwave (they figured out how to open the microwave door with their mouth).
One night I came back from work and startled a bull elk who was cleaning my microwave. The elk tried to pull his head back out the window, but his antlers caught the window frame and ripped the entire window unit out of the wall!
Motherfarker lost me my damage deposit. Luckily it wasn't the first elk to destroy a window at those dorms so the landlords didn't even question my story.

It seems like Tyler Terryberry of Parshall, Colorado has given his story to Meateater. Much of the other coverage references them.
What an idiot, and proud of it.

Jan 11, 2022
As antler-obsessed humans, we usually look at pointy beams with awe and excitement. Rarely do we consider their potential for destruction. That is, until we come face-to-face with with an strong-willed animal like Tyler and Sheena Terryberry of Parshall, Colorado, did during a morning drive on Jan. 8.

Tyler, a hunting guide with lots of close elk encounters under his belt, admittedly coaxed this saucy bull from the comfort of the driver's seat in Sheena's truck. In the video you can hear Sheena warning him that the bull might actually be interested in a confrontation. But by the time Tyler asks him if he "wants to go," the bull has already decided to plow his tines straight into Sheena's brand-spanking-new front left snow tire.

"She definitely warned me," Tyler told MeatEater. "Every once in a while you find an animal that's sick, and they don't usually act right. The [Colorado Division of Wildlife] had to put down a mountain lion near us just a week ago because it was sick and acting weird. Then of course when it happened, it was an 'I told you so' moment. If it was my truck she wouldn't have cared; she would have laughed right along with me."

The pop and hiss that follow the impact is suggestive of how the Terryberrys spent the hour that followed: parked on the side of the road, putting their spare tire to good use before continuing on to their daughter's basketball game.

"We get pretty close to elk where we're at, and I've been way closer than that, and I've never had one try to attack me," Tyler said. "It took me by surprise."

However, the price of new tire aside, Tyler swears he has no regrets.

"The cost was well worth the story, and I'm glad I got it on video because no one would have ever believed me," he said. "The bull didn't get hurt, and it could have been worse. He could have punctured a hole in the radiator or come through the window at me."

None of them nearly close enough.

Dude, that elk just popped a snow tire with one poke of his "tines". Do you understand what he'd do to you if he caught you away from your projectile-firing advantage projector?

in high school my friend's mom hit an elk and it came through the windshield, thrashing as you do when all four of your legs just got broken. it gored her to death with its antlers before she could get out of her seat belt. elk are no joke.

You can tell the difference because elk are thin at one end, much, much thicker in the middle and then thin again at the far end.

Did your window not close, or did you just decide cleaning your own microwave was too much effort?

The elk community has apparently compiled their wisdom on vehicular assault into a manifesto on the most vulnerable parts. Tires. Simple, brutal, and efficient. These antlers are made for pokin'

NobleHam:

The dorms had steam heat and the rooms had no thermostat. Since it was Jasper and an old building (JPL Building B) they kept  the heat hot enough so the pipes wouldn't freeze at -30c. If it was warmer than -25c the window had to be wide open or the room would turn into a sauna... and the heat brought out the odours of many decades of dormlife partying contained within the carpets and walls.
The only plug in, other than the one used for my PS1 and TV was right next to the window. I tried putting the non-regulation full-size contraband fridge I had there once but the elk farked with that more than the microwave.

And yah, I was 19 or 20 so the elk helping with the housekeeping was thought of as a benefit. 
/elk like chocolate mousse
