Watch this video.
It’s a “what not to do when encountering wildlife” video.
Something that I have witnessed, but not to such a degree.
And, what? The father laughs at the end? Don’t worry, Yellowstone is just a circus. You won’t ACTUALLY feel it when the bison gores you and seriously injures or kills your child. THAT IS SARCASTIC by the way.
It’s unbelievable. A few years ago, a child was killed by a bison when the father thought it was an a-ok idea to place his kid on the bison’s back for a good point-and-shoot picture.
Listen to the rangers, the pamphlets, and the signs: STAY 25 YARDS AWAY FROM BISON.
I just talked (rationally) about this a few days ago. Sorry, but this was absolutely IDIOTIC!
