The Canadian Elk, magnificent representative of all that's wild and free, except when they're not, like when they're pests.

This is near Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, researchers are looking for elk.

As it turns out, sometimes they don't have to look too far. There have been cases of elk charging people if they get too close.
