Musk Ox Fights Big Rock

This musk ox risks giving himself a serious migraine as he hones his head-butting skills against a large rock. The lone male was observed in Norway’s Dovrefjell Park practicing his charges in preparation for the new season. The unusual behavior was caught on camera by wildlife photographer Nicolas Le Bayon during a three day visit to the park in June of this year.  Musk ox are largely peaceful animals usually found in herds, but Le Bayon believes the imminent new season was the trigger for the ox to let out his inner beast.
