Tule Elk (Cervus canadensis nannodes) at Sunset, San Luis National Wildlife Refuge, California
Despite exercising some care, it still got me pretty good. Coloration is pretty atratus-ish, but 8 upper labials. CORRECTION: both elegans and atratus have 8 upper labials (usually). The count is a way to separate them from sirtalis. T. atratus should not have 6 and 7 enlarged, though, as elegans does.

It is displaying defensively, including flattening and widening its head and striking.
