Wildlife Safety Videos

Park regulations state that visitors must stay more than 100 yards away from bears and 25 yards away from other wildlife. Many visitors see large wild animals that seem tame and therefore approach far closer than they should. These videos are intended to convince everyone that it is unwise to approach wild animals even if they seem tame.

These videos are all copyrighted by the videographers. They are not in the public domain and may not be reproduced in any way.

Never approach closer than 25 yards to elk.
