A man appearing to taunt a bison crossing the road at Yellowstone National Park was caught on video Tuesday evening and later posted on Facebook by Lindsey Jones.
Lindsey called the video #dontdrinkand buffalo, but it is not known if the man had been imbibing before getting out of his car and shooing the animal away so vehicles could pass. It would seem reasonable for all park visitors to stay in their vehicles – these are wild animals, and they are huge. Imagine the harm one could do to any human, and then of course, the animal suffers the worst consequences.
Watching the video, one can see the man walking towards the bison in Hayden Valley, face off with the animal and run away a few times in fear.
The park’s website states:
“The animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be. The safest (and often best) view of wildlife is from inside a car. Always stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves, and at lease 25 yards away from all other animals, including bison and elk.”
Check out the video. What was this man thinking?
