A park worker in Estes Park, Colorado, was simply doing his job changing trash can liners when his day took a dangerous turn.

A bull elk——likely still all fired up from the rut——became aggressive and approached him.

Yikes.

I know they’re big, but they probably look WAY bigger when those spear tips are pointed directly at you.

The park worker does what any sensible person would do: he runs around to the other side of a nearby wood post, fully preparing to have to run around it while the bull chases him. Like something out of Benny Hill.

Thankfully, a nearby park visitor tosses a rock at the aggressive bull, distracting it for just long enough to allow the trapped worker to escape.
