Old story, not a good ending.

Sad ending but that particular elk already had a history of aggressive behaviour towards people - and as he was being fed etc by them that would have only caused him to lose fear of them. Moral of this story, anytime wildlife, beit carnivore or herbivore, is bigger than you comes too close - STAND UP!!! The sudden increase in height would have put an end to this a lot sooner.

ETA: Just watched the vid - what an asshat. The photog, that is. By staying low on the ground, in a submissive posture and then presenting the top of his head to an animal who is designed to butt his head against another's is just plain idiocy. I blame him entirely for not bringing this to an end sooner by standing up and driving it away. When he stood up he backed away instead of moving confidently forward, and when he finally returned for his gear, he turned his body sideways to the elk instead of standing square on to him. He may as well have extended to the elk an engraven invitation to come and headbutt him, cause he did everything wrong.

He should never have been out of the car in the first place.
