Elk selfies gone wrong: Two gored at St. Louis County park prompt more safety warnings

ST. LOUIS COUNTY • The signs at Lone Elk Park read: “Absolutely do not approach the elk!”

But the signs apparently aren’t enough.

Within the past two weeks, two people have been injured by charging elk in the west St. Louis County park, alongside Interstate 44 near Valley Park, after ignoring the warnings.

Lone Elk Park officials say they usually get about one report every year of someone being gored. The animals are especially dangerous during mating season, which lasts from about mid-August into December, when bulls are especially aggressive.

Since Sept. 30, two women have been injured when they got near the herd of 17 elk.

    I tell you they are deserving. I live in Florida, gators eat people, they don’t care that you are people. Stupid people come here, swim where they shouldn’t and there goes an arm.

    Our black bears haven’t been hunted for a hundred years, stupid people move into their territory, which I live in and we have no problems, feed the bears then get hurt. We didn’t have a bear hunt due to these bastards and their injuries, we had a bear slaughter, you should have been here, they came from all over, overwhelmed our little town and they slaughtered the number in one day, the hunt called off.

    I prefer the bears and wildlife to the stupid people. Stay out of our forests and don’t build your homes on our national forests, you stupid SOB’s.

    This starts the process of evolution. The smart survive and the stupid die. Who in their right mind would even attempt to come close to an elk if you were not armed and hunting them? Liberals!!! This is an OSHA failure.

    As they say, you can’t fix stupid.
