Cathy Hayes,from Utah,and her male friend attacked by a bison while recording!

At about :55 the bison gets hit with something. I can only assume the pudgy doofus in the blue shorts threw something at it.

Mostly it made news because it got caught on video.

Actually if you watch closely, it was something stuck on its horn. It just flew off when it reared its head back.

Yup, 100% correct. Good eyes. I had been thinking that whatever hit him was too flimsy to have been thrown from that far away. I stand by my "pudgy doofus" remark though.

Still, it was minding its own business, and they started stalking it.

Re: Bison: 1, Stupid Yellowstone Tourists: 0

The many times I've driven in through the east gate to spend time in Yellowstone I've always laughed at the big sign at the gate.

Paraphrased: 'Bears and Buffalo and other wild animals are NOT park attractions. They are wild animals with a mind of their own. They could decide to attack you if you approach them. DO NOT approach wild animals in the park.'

I laugh every time.

By the way the rangers always hand out the buffalo flyers too. Usually on yellow paper. "Buffalo are wild animals," the flyer cautions. "Each year, many people are gored by buffalo. Do not approach the buffalo."



I've stood 4 to 5 feet from a big male buffalo. Man they're massive, powerful animals. I had come out of the Old Faithful lodge to get something out of my truck. As I came back out of the truck he was right there at the back of my truck looking at me. I just stood there looking at him. Three or four were just wandering through the parking lot. It was really cool. He lumbered off after a few seconds.

Re: Bison: 1, Stupid Yellowstone Tourists: 0

I remember living in Wyoming and hearing about stupid people getting dangerously close to being trampled. My mother actually drove past a tourist who had climbed into a fenced in area in order to get a picture of a buffalo. She pulled over and yelled at the lady to get the hell out of there and the lady replied "I'm waiting for it to put it's head up." My mother then informed her that if it's head is down, it's because it's going to charge her dumb ass.

I wish people would realize that wild animals are WILD and not the docile pets they have at home or watch on TV. It really annoyed me watching the guy chase after it. I know it's really cool to see something that like that stroll by, but these animals don't exist for your personal amusement.

Bison is a tough opponent, with that Psycho Crusher move.

I have no idea why she WAITED till it was charging after her till she decides to run. 35 feet is pushing it a bit as far as close as id want to get. I would have been running the second it started bucking and not wait till it starts charging.

Very big & thick animals. When I was a kid, Cody, the buffalo that "starred" in Dances With Wolves was at a fair here and I got to feed him Oreos. I remember being scared shitless here was going to bite my hand off.

That would have been a pretty good Darwin Award if the bison had finished the job.

I hope Kathy and her "male friend" decide to run after speeding vehicles on the highway leading to Yellowstone.

Kathy, if you both position yourselves directly on the yellow lines, both of you can get some pretty good video.

Re: Bison: 1, Stupid Yellowstone Tourists: 0

This story would only be sad if it turned out park officials had the animal put down. I hate reading stories of dumbasses who provoke wild animals, get attacked, and the wild animal is then put down. It should always be the moron people who are put down. Or at least thrown in jail for a month or two.

That pudgy doofus marched after it like he was a kid going on a pony ride. I wonder what percentage of people seeing the video were rooting for the bison.

Pressed play then scrolled down...scrolled back up and thought this thread was making fun of the guy in the jorts and he was the buffalo.


Also, bastards deserved it. That's what you get for throwing shit at animals morons, I wish there were more videos of animals "fighting back"...who is up to the task of editing this vid in slo-mo and syncing it to "We're Not Gonna Take It"...anyone?
