Habituation 

Recently I traveled through Jasper National Park en route to Northern Alberta. Jasper is one of my favourite National Parks in Canada. As many of you know I love to photograph Elk. I was appalled to see “tourists” just outside of the townsite approaching these beautiful animals, sometimes within ten feet or less. I tried to intervene but without any luck. I then contacted Parks Canada. Perhaps surprisingly to some, Elk are the most dangerous animals in Canada’s National Parks. Unfortunately in this case the Elk are being harmed more than those in the images and others that choose to behave like this. Please respect the wildlife.
