Anyone else waiting for the attack?
No, just me…
Bison are relatively docile creatures, especially considering their size and ability to wreak havoc on anything in their path. Make no mistake, if they want to, they’ll mow you down.
And while bison attacks are relatively infrequent, there’s no shortage of instances where we’ve seen tourists get charged, tossed in the air, and even gored at Yellowstone.
Lucky for these cyclists, that wasn’t the case here.
In the video, you can see a cyclist biking down an absolutely gorgeous stretch of road in Yellowstone National Park, in Wyoming, when he comes across a large herd of bison.
Other cyclists have chosen to pull over and take cover among the trees while the bison pass, but our man here. He’s made the decision to share the road with the bison… hoping that they see the road the same way.
“27-year-old Caleb Dvorak bikes solo within feet of 75 bison in Yellowstone on Grand Loop Road on April 9th, 2022. Nobody was hurt in the filming of this video and no wildlife was disturbed.”
No harm, no foul.
Still though, you can’t help but feel a little uneasy in such close proximity, and moving quickly towards, these big, beautiful beasts.
Something tells me the sight of the other bikers pulled over made Caleb think twice about continuing on.
Then again, maybe he was just taking in the scenery…
Either way, a wild encounter no doubt.
