A hunter from Hillsboro died as a result of his injuries after an elk charged him, impaling him in the neck.
Elk kills hunter, Man bites dog? Not a very dignified way to go.
Oregon State Police says Mark David, 66, was archery hunting on private property in Tillamook on Saturday when he wounded a bull elk. David was not able to locate it before it got dark outside.
Even the Native Americans were smart enough to give up sticks ans strings for the modern firearm.
David and the landowner attempted to find the elk on Sunday morning at around 9:15 a.m. Once the hunter tried to kill the bull elk with his bow, the animal charged and David sustained life-threatening injuries.
I got to admit that is one bad ass elk though
OSP says the elk was killed and the meat was donated to the Tillamook County Jail following an investigation into the incident.
How fitting .
