A couple was taking a stroll in Canada's Jasper National Park when a male elk appeared from out of the woods and started to charge at them. They only knew to make loud noises in hopes of deterring it away. It took some time, but they finally found a way to get the elk to run in the other direction. via ViralHog

Meanwhile, while on a whale watching tour in Nova Scotia, Canada, a group of tourists experienced quite the encounter as a whale's massive tail came crashing down onto their boat. Thankfully, it doesn't appear anyone was injured — including the whale.
