Man Taunts Bison in Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone tourist foolishly taunts bison avoids serious injury

"The individual's behavior in this video is reckless, risky and illegal", a spokesman for the public affairs office of Yellowstone National Park told ABC News. In June, a bison there gored a woman after a crowd surged within feet of it, according to the park.

In the video, a man wearing a blue T-shirt and shorts can be seen approaching a bison that was holding up traffic by standing in the middle of a two-way road.

'Get out of there, ' someone else in her auto can be heard shouting.

The bison can be heard making grunting noises in the video as he crosses the road and the unidentified man squares up.

There was one incident in 2017 and five in 2015, according to BNQT. The bison charges him a couple times before the video ends. "Every year people are injured when they approach animals too closely". The National Park Service advises that individuals should always remain at least 100 yards (about 90 meters) from bears or wolves and at least 25 yards (20 metres) away from all other wildlife. "These distances safeguard both visitors and a remarkable experience of sharing landscape with thousands of freely roaming animals".

Within the same week two others were attacked by an elk. One way to do that is to keep your distance from wildlife.

"These are not Elsie the cow". "The safest (and often best) view of wildlife is from inside a vehicle". You should never get closer than 20-30 yards to an animal.

Reinke had told rangers that his plans were to travel to Glacier National Park, so on Thursday night, Glacier National Park rangers began looking for his vehicle. "To have these areas where these animals can still exist".
