Yellowstone National Park Tourist Provides A+ Commentary On Idiots Approaching Bison

Bison charges at Yellowstone National Park

Why? Just tell me why…

There are enough videos floating around of bison, elk and bear encounters gone wrong at national parks. And it never ceases to amaze me that these people think these beasts are friendly.

This isn’t a petting zoo, that bison won’t think twice about running you right over… or worse, running a horn right through you.

The people filming this video are clearly aware of what is about to occur. Their camera is on and the woman is even narrating the events unfolding.

And the commentary is FANTASTIC:

“We’ve run into a Bison here and these stupid girls are approaching it”

Well, that about sums it up…

But it does get better. The woman who clearly knows her stuff, hits us with some cold hard facts.

“Ahh, Bison can run up to 30 miles per hour and gore you to death”

True story..

She continues on to say what we all are thinking.

“Smart, smart folks. I can’t believe we let some people into National Parks, any-who..”

The woman, clearly should have some popcorn because she might as well be watching a movie. She is going to let these people figure it out the hard way.

And that lesson is served pretty quickly.

The bison doesn’t like how close the Tourons are and takes a good run at them sending them fleeing for their lives.

The woman pretty sarcastically sums it up.

“Oh yeah, there ya go. That’s generally about the general level of intelligence we run across here.”

The people scatter and run for the hills… as they should. The bison carries on in just another day in the life of a wild animal in a national park.

Bison Charges Entire Family At Yellowstone National Park

It is really non-stop.

Time after time, just incredibly stupid bison charge videos. It’s really surprisingly few people who actually get hurt in the videos, however when they do, it’s never good.

So once again for the people in the back, these are not cows, they’re not friendly, and they will run you over without a second thought.

The video starts with an entire family walking directly towards a bison that is standing next to a boardwalk.

Although there are many stupid people way to close, this family is the king of them all as they decide to walk straight to this bison. They walk within a few feet of it and all start taking cellphone pictures. It’s not worth the pic for the ‘Gram…

The man video taping this wild event from afar sums up what we are all thinking perfectly.

“See him gesturing? See his head movements?  Saying I will get you, I will get you.”

The bison continues to give them fair warning it is not happy. The crowd start to realize and disperse. Four people stay put and quickly learn what the bison was communicating.

One man starts to run away a bit from the increasing angry animal and everything starts to run including the bison.

Most of their family makes it to higher ground. The bison stays on the tail of one of the smallest people there. The boy uses the bushes to help get away as he gets chased in a circle with everyone shouting for him to run.

He makes it away safe and everyone in the area realizes they need to take a good 10-steps back.

And perhaps the craziest part? The man who seems to be his father is laughing the whole time…

Ain’t nothing funny about that, dad. Other than how stupid you are.

The kid got lucky…

Bison Railroads Another Bison At Yellowstone National Park


Time and time again we see tourist walking right up to a full-grown bison and all we can do is cringe and wait to see what happens.

Videos continue to pop up of people paying the price of getting close to these beasts whether it’s a biker getting their pants ripped off, a tourist near getting run over or someone’s car actually getting run over by a bison.

There just doesn’t seem to be an end to the madness…

But those loses are our rewards in the form of cheap entertainment and I’m not complaining.

However, a video like this shows just why we stay the hell away from any Bison, regardless of the size or situation. You’re a tourist, not an expert or even a good photographer. It is better to be safe than sorry.

The video is a short one the point is made clear in that time.

A typical day at Yellowstone National Park with a whole herd of bison blocking the road. This fella is smart and stayed in the comfort of his vehicle and videotaped it from afar.

Amongst the group of bison, two of them seem to be havin’ er out. One of them takes off running as the other says ‘oh shit’ and takes a few steps back. Too late…

The charging bison puts its head down and literally makes another mature bison fly.

Please don’t get close to one, it will fold you right in two. Check it out.

Brown Bears Have Vicious Battle Over Whale Carcass Off Coast Of Alaska

I just got back from the lovely state of Montana, and while I didn’t run into any bears while I was there (probably a good thing), you get a first hand account of the vast, incredible, and humbling beauty this country has to offer.

And while Montana is amazing it gets no more vast, incredible and humbling than Alaska.

In this incredible footage at the Katmai Coast of Southern Alaska, we get to watch as two coastal brown bears engage in a vicious fight over a beached whale carcass.

A whale carcass beached on the Alaskan coast prompted several dramatic fights between scavenging bears over the newfound bounty.

The scene was caught on camera at the Katmai coast in southern Alaska, in August 2015, as a massive male attacked a smaller female with a cub at the carcass, briefly gaining the upper hand until a different male attacks, saving the female.

And we have a front row seat.

Woman Trips Running From Charging Bison And Narrowly Misses Getting Ran Over

It’s open season on idiots at Yellowstone these days.

We saw a 9-year-old girl get air mailed (she was fine though) after her parents got too close (way to go dad), and even more recently, we saw an elderly lady get gored at Yellowstone after she tried to pet a bison, yes PET A BISON. It should go without saying, but don’t try and put a bison people…

Anyways… now we have another lady who barely escaped, in fact… tripping over her own feet might’ve saved her life.

A unnamed woman was recently touring Yellowstone National Park and found herself running for her life when she got too close to a charging bison. She tripped, fell flat on her face, and then played dead. The charging bison pumped the brakes right before running her clean over.

According to KBZK, the woman was a “Montana local” and knew that she should “play dead,” but I have to ask… if you know to “play dead” when a bison tries to smash you like a bug, then how come you don’t know to stay the hell away from them?

Like, ya know?

I mean, here’s the bison warning from Yellowstone right now…

Basically, keep your distance from moose, stay WAY the hell away from bears, and Bison? Don’t even think about it…

And yet somehow, we have a new story every day with some bozo wandering right up to the herd to get a pic for the ‘Gram.
