VIDEO: Elk bucks woman who got too close

CASPER, WY -- Well that's one way to get close the nature.

A woman learned a valuable lesson about giving wild animals their space at Yellowstone National Park over the Memorial Day weekend.

A new viral video shows a park ranger warning the woman as she attempted to take a photo with an elk.

Apparently the elk wasn't in the mood and charged the woman, bucking her 25 feet away from the spot where she was standing.

Ouch.

"It won't happen again," the woman mutters.

"I'm sure it won't," the park ranger replied.
