The elk who gored an Oregon hunter to death.

Mark David shot the bull elk Saturday during an outing on private land just outside Tillamook — but was unable to locate the animal, the Salem Stateman Journal reported.
The 66-year-old archer returned the next morning around 9:15 a.m. and found the wounded elk. As he attempted to kill it with his bow, the animal charged and impaled him in the neck with its antlers, according to Oregon State Police.
“The landowner attempted to help David but he sustained fatal injuries and died,” police said.
The elk was later killed and the meat was donated to the Tillamook County Jail after an investigation into the fatal incident.
