According to Yellowstone National Park, “Bison have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal. Bison are unpredictable and can run three times faster than humans. Always stay at least 25 yards away from wildlife.”

There is no word on whether the man has been identified or ticketed by park authorities.

  1. What a moron. The bison would probably be destroyed if it had connected.

  2. David Smith says:

    Too bad it was “nearly gored” and not “gored to death”.

  4. Lock that moron up for bothering animals and putting that animal’s life at risk !
    Seriously, LOCK HIM UP NOW !

  5. Dave Johnson says:

    I seriously wish the bison had killed him.

  6. “Hoping for death of another person…”
    Really? Look inside yourself. What do you see?

  7. The government culls buffalo every winter, what is worse? This is such an unnatural environment for the remnants of once a might herd on pavement with cars all around. being taunted, very sad reality of a once mighty herd. 21st century. I wish people would stand up and stop the culling. It seems like this one video has gone viral, no one is there filming when the buffalo are being culled in the winter. And now the grizzly with their young are being culled. What kind of park is this? Its more like a containment area and if there is too many they can be eliminated.
