    ARTICLE: Man Kills Elk, Elk Impales Man Moments Later

    Is this story for real? Or did I get fooled by the Huffington Post?

    mixed feelings.......depending on if he planned on eating it......if he did plan on eating it, i hope he gets better, if he killed it for sport, i enjoy the irony...

    i don't support killing for sport. my father did that. funny enough my mom cursed him so the only larger animals he ever killed again were ones he crashed into while driving. from what i hear, its still going strong.....

    either way, this is as odd as the "wife kills husband with squirrel" news title....

    yeah, everyone i told this had the exact same reaction

    in the true events, one christmas, the wife sends her husband out to get beer. all the stores were closed and he returned home. she was so angry that she hit him over the head with a ceramic squirrel and started stabbing him with the bits to death. the cops arrive shortly after to arrest her.

    aside from the hilarious name, the last sentence of the NBC report was "no update on the condition of the squirrel"

    Sometimes you get the elk, sometimes you get the horns. Sometimes, apparently, you get the elk and then later you also get the horns in some freak occurrence.

    This is why you don't kill poor animals. Karma.

    Hilarious. Never seen karma happen so quickly. Just wish it finished the job, but at least he'll have the lasting memory of it.

    to a degree, i agree.

    there are licenses to hunt elk and other delicious animals but only in certain areas and only as food.

    i remember a case in the 90s of a moose (i think named Charger) with HUGE antlers that was a tourist attraction. people would come to see him from all parts.

    and then for a few days, park rangers noticed that Charger has not appearred and they went looking for him and he was found dead with his antlers torn off.

    a little while later, this guy wanted to have these huge antlers mounted for his home,

    before the worker started anything he saw a clip from a newspaper about Charger's death put two and two together and called authorities. the guy and a friend of his who killed Charger were arrested for illegal hunting.

    Never trust an ATV.

    Thank God he's still alive. Getting killed like that is something nobody needs. As for the karma nonsense, quite frankly, I don't give a rat's rear about the stupid elk. People call man the worst predator, but here's a newsflash: predators are a natural part of the cycle, and man is part of nature. Nature isn't some Disneyfied paradise that's being despoiled by the evils of mankind. It's a vicious, bloody struggle for survival. Death and killing are part of that struggle, whether we like it or not. In all honesty, why should we care about an elk that likely would have been food anyway.

    It was a legal hunt, so it's not "karma." I'm glad the guy is ok, and I'm sure he and his family feel lucky that he managed to survive.
