This video from the USA says about itself:
2 September 2017
A bull Elk or Wapiti relaxing and enjoying a tasty breakfast of some sort of tree branch he has brought out into the open near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Happened upon this fellow while hiking – I have never seen a bull elk so mellow before although most are habituated to some degree to humans this is a little unusual. Of course I did not approach any nearer than my initial encounter – talked softly and then moved on.
Although large, this fellow is not big enough to seriously compete in the upcoming fall rut for the right to a harem; maybe in a year or two.
