When it comes to wild animals, some people just don’t get it. Park rangers in Missouri are dealing with that issue first-hand where a viewing public just won’t keep its distance. Two people received minor injuries over the past couple of weeks because they got too close during elk mating season.

“It charged them and put its head down and was shaking its rack right at one female. She was injured in the arm and had some blood on her face,” Kent Burgess, a photographer taking photos from a distance, told KSDK-TV.

Plain and simple, taking selfies can be dangerous and deadly.
