Another Bison Incident At Yellowstone -- Man Pets One

Recently, there was another incident with a bison in Yellowstone National Park that was caught on camera. This incident was much tamer than the little girl being tossed into the air by a large male bison. This one, however, is at least as clear an example, and maybe even more of an example, of what one should not do when in close proximity to these animals, or any other wildlife.

This act was not only very dangerous for the person touching the bison, but for those that were in that same area. Also, such an act violates park regulations and could result in severe penalties for those involved.

Since this video has been making the rounds online, park officials have become an investigation into the matter. Park officials are also continuing to urge visitors not to touch or interact with the wildlife. They suggest staying a minimum of 25 yards away from all wild animals, especially the larger animals such as bison, elk, and moose. This is for the safety of the animals and the people.

If you have any questions or concerns about wildlife in the parks, please go to any of the parks websites and be sure to some your own research to know how to avoid and how to handle an encounter with wildlife.
