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 at Yellowstone National Park 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”
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, but 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 these morons 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…
