Man Taunts Bison in Yellowstone National Park, Gets What He Deserves

Man Taunts Bison in Yellowstone National Park, Gets What He Deserves

The footage was recorded by tourist Lindsey Jones as she was driving through Hayden Valley on Tuesday. Realize how privileged we are to have these national parks.

Cars are lined up in both directions, rolling as slow speed, as the bison wanders among them and on the side of the road.

The video shows a bison walking across the road and grunting loudly while a man in a blue shirt and shorts approaches it from behind. The bison went after him a couple times and then carried on with what he was doing before he was bothered. "Oh God, no, no, I can't watch", she said. In July, a Tennessee man was rammed by a bison after he hopped a fence to get a closer look at the animals.

Herbert did not comment on whether the man could be issued a citation.

Did she ever suspect he might become a jihadist? She correctly said no. Our family overseas all came back to Saudi", he added. He became a very different man.


In a statement posted on Facebook, Superintendent Dan Wenk called the man's actions "reckless, risky and illegal".

The National Park Service advises visitors to stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards away from all other wildlife.

After receiving multiple complaints from park visitors about someone tormenting wildlife, authorities believe Reinke started harassing the bison after the traffic stop. "People who ignore these rules are risking their lives and threatening the park experience for everyone else", Wenk said in the statement.

He added that, should members of the public see people mistreating the animals, they should tell a ranger, or call 911, if you see someone whose behavior might hurt them or the park.
