Man taunts bison in Yellowstone National Park

Man taunts bison in Yellowstone National Park

The video has since gone viral and attracted the attention of park authorities.

Despite the close call, it seems as if the man is not ready to back down.

The video shows a man in the road taunting a bison.

The video was posted by Lindsey Jones; it was taken taken in Hayden Valley in Yellowstone on Tuesday evening (July 31). In May, a woman stumbled across a bison as she came around a bend in a trail, and the startled animal head-butted her off the path.

"Oh God, I can't watch", a bystander can be heard saying in the video. As of Thursday afternoon, it had been viewed on Q2 more than 29,000 times.

There was a problem in the pit stop so we re-entered the track behind Valtteri. I think we could have gone with Lewis today with the race pace", Vetel said.

On June 6, 59-year-old Kim Hancock of Santa Rosa, Calif., was gored by a bull bison at Fountain Paint Pot in the Lower Geyser Basin, according to the park. One of those people was Reinke, who rangers drove to Helena, where he was booked into the Yellowstone Jail without bond, according to the National Park Service release. Rangers first arrested him in Grand Teton National Park for alleged public intoxication and causing a disturbance. He again appeared to be intoxicated and was cited for not wearing a seatbelt.

Reinke's bond was revoked per the request of the Assistant U.S. Attorney on August 2 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Park officials advise visitors to "always stay at least 100 yards (91 metres) away from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards (23 metres) away from all other animals, including bison and elk".

"People who ignore these rules are risking their lives and threatening the park experience for everyone else", Wenk told BNQT.
