A bull elk nearly killed a man at a Colorado golf course over the weekend.
Golfer Zak Bornhoft was driving a golf cart at a golf course in Evergreen, Colo. when he was suddenly charged by a large bull elk and impaled by one of its antlers.
One of the elk’s antlers stabbed Bornhoft in the stomach, protruding through it and slicing off a portion of his kidney. Bornhoft was rushed to a local hospital, according to Fox 31 Denver.
Doctors believe that a slightly different placement of the antler would have killed him, CBS Denver reports. Bornhoft is currently at an intensive care unit at St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood, Colo.
