For the second time in three days, an elk has attacked someone in Yellowstone National Park. The National Park Service says a female elk with a calf attacked 53-year-old park visitor Penny Allyson Behr behind the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel on Tuesday, the AP reports. Yellowstone officials say the elk surprised Behr as she walked between cabins.

An unfortunate event, as it seems the woman did nothing wrong - she just had the misfortune of not spotting the elk in time to steer clear of it. I hope she recovers quickly. I love Yellowstone, but it will never be a 100% safe place to visit.

She ran into a mother elk with her calf. Naturally the elk will do what she thinks it takes to keep her baby safe. It's too bad the lady was hurt but I don't know why this would even make the news.
