In the article Woman Attacked By Bull Elk by Dan Boniface talks about a 47 year old woman, resident of Evergreen, that was attacked by a bull elk. The woman was leaving her home when she saw a herd of elk on her property. She immediately noticed the bull elk and began to feel nervous. She picked up her cell phone and called her husband. During the phone call, the elk attacked. Her husband rushed home and found his wife with moderate injuries from this attack.The Division of Wildlife reports elk attacks are extremely rare. It is mating season for the elk which could have been the cause for the attack. The elk probably felt threatened and was defending its territory. During mating season bull elk are very aggressive. People need to use caution this time of year when they see elk. People are advised to stay far away from these creatures and look from a far.
