Rutting bulls are nothing to mess with.

So when this group of tourists got too close to a nice-sized bull in Estes Park, Colorado, it was no surprise that the bull became agitated.

It sounds like the tourists were—of course—taking pictures of the bull, and the flash set him off. Unfortunately, he singled out one unfortunate lady to take the brunt of his wrath.

The poor lady does her best to defend herself, but look at the rack on that thing. There’s no escape for her. Check it out:



The bull has the poor lady totally helpless, digging his antlers dangerously close to her face.

Just after the attack started, a park worker drove his truck between the tourist and the animal, ending the encounter.

Typically, Colorado Park & Wildlife staff remind all visitors that the bulls are dangerous this time of year—and probably did so here as well. Unfortunately, some people don’t listen.

I was able to determine that the woman’s injuries were not severe, thankfully. Hopefully this will serve as a lesson for future park-goers.
