When it comes to Bison at Yellowstone, Don't be Stupid!

  Posted by roadtrekingmike, 05 December 2012 · 457 views

There's nothing like the sight of one of Yellowstone National Park's magnificent bison to slow traffic.

These shaggy giants seem oblivious to the traffic. They cross the road where they want. They go where they want. The National Park Service says humans need to stay far away from bison. But they don't. People, in quest of a photo, get very stupid.

As you can see on my video, people are stupid. Every year, someone gets hurt. Sometimes very badly. Bison can kill.
For these animals will charge. They usually warn you that they’re perturbed by stomping their feet or nodding their heads. But stupid people dont seem to care.

That doesn't mean you can't get good photos. Just keep your distance.

Yellowstone's bison are awesome creatures. But remember, they outweigh you 10 to one. If you get too close to them, they don't take kindly to it.
