In defense of the driver, I'm not sure what else they could have done. However, they ended up getting too close to a bison in Yellowstone National Park and now they'll have something to explain to the insurance adjuster.
It's likely you've heard by now that another tourist has been gored by a bison in Yellowstone. There's new video of the incident that shows this may have been a heroic effort that saved a child's life.
Wyoming nature is really cool! It's not everyday when you see the same things that you will see in the Cowboy State and it's pretty magnificent! Of course, there are those days when you are just going about your day just driving down the road trying to get where you need to be, whether it be going to or from work, meeting up with friends or family, or just running some errands and then all of a sudden, you get caught in traffic because you get stuck behind a giant bison that's taking up all of the road.
Normally when I see something like this, I just tell everyone to move along. Nothing unusual to witness here. However, for some reason unknown to me, the internet is obsessed with a Yellowstone bison who has found himself the perfect itching post.
Over the years, we've unfortunately had to share many moments where tourists do the wrong thing with wildlife in Yellowstone National Park. This is the opposite of that. A group of bikers shared their close encounter with a bison and they did everything right.
