Two bull elk vie for dominance in this AP file photo. Two wild elk, blatantly disregarding social distancing, locked antlers at Redwood National Park in a halfhearted duel that was caught on video. The only casualty was a “Danger: Wild Elk” sign that the bulls kept drunkenly stumbling into. The post wobbled with every body slam, the sign clanked every antler jab. At this time of the year, Roosevelt elk males — which can weigh up to 1,000 pounds each — rarely engage in a full-blown fight. That’s reserved for the fall rut when they attempt to prove their dominance in front of the cows. The two bulls in the video, which was recorded by a tourist at the park’s Prairie Creek Redwoods campground in Orick, were just sparring.
