  • The elk rut has begun in Yellowstone National Park.
  • Bull elk can be extremely dangerous during this time.
  • Stay alert! People have been severely injured by elk. Elk run quickly and may change direction without warning.
  • Keep at least 25 yards from elk at all times.
  • If an elk charges you, find shelter in your vehicle or behind a tall, sturdy barrier as quickly as possible.
  • You are responsible for your own safety.
