An elk charged at a woman in Yellowstone National Park after she got too close to the wild animal. Luckily she seems to come away unscathed from the encounter.

In the video uploaded on 29 May, the woman can be seen just a few feet away from the elk. Jody Tibbitts, a tour guide who shot the video, said that he warned the woman she was too close to the animal. Yellowstone Park requires visitors to stay at least 25ft (8m) away from wild animals.

Tibbitts can be heard saying: "I was just going to tell you you're too close to that elk." After the woman gets up and walks away, she calls back: "It won't happen again."

This is not the first time tourists have interfered with the wildlife at Yellowstone National Park. On 16 May, a bison calf had to be euthanised after tourists took it away in a car because they thought it was cold. When the animal was returned to its mother and herd they rejected it due to its contact with humans.
