Video of bugling bull elk at Yellowstone

Yellowstone National Park often is called the “Serengeti of North America.”

The park’s Lamar Valley contains the greatest collection of large animals in North America: bison and elk herds, grizzlies in the woods, wolf packs, black bears, and osprey and bald eagles in the skies. A great trail to see elk and other wildlife in Lamar Valley is the the 5.3-mile Lamar Valley Trail.

The trailhead is east of Lamar Ranger Station. Dawn and dusk mark the best times to see active animals.

Here’s a video of a bull elk bugling loudly at Yellowstone:
