Please Do Not Go Close To Wild Bison In Yellowstone National Park: Bison in the wild are enormous animals. The wild bison can be hostile at times. Therefore, one should avoid getting too close to wild bison. It’s been said, both by us and by Yellowstone National Park, which is located in the state of Wyoming in the United States… more than once.
Stay at least 23 meters (75 feet) away from them, as that is the minimum distance required by the Park’s rule about it. They may weigh up to 907 kilograms (2,000 pounds) and run up to speeds of 56 kilometers per hour (35 miles per hour), so you really do not want them running anywhere near you. These majestic animals are also quite territorial and violent animals.
According to the National Park Service, in spite of these warnings, another person has now been assaulted by these creatures, which are located in this park. A woman who was 71 years old was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening. The woman was returning to her vehicle when she approached the animal, which prompted the animal to charge at her. This incident took place as a result.
This is not the only assault that has happened recently; just three days ago, a man who was 34 years old and from Pennsylvania was also assaulted. It was planned that he and his family would take a leisurely stroll along a boardwalk that was located close to the famous Old Faithful geyser in the park.
A guy was shown on video footage rescuing a toddler from the path of a charging bull bison before he himself was thrown into the air by the animal. After the incident, he required medical attention for a wound to his arm and was consequently transported to the nearest hospital.
This altercation with the man did not even take place on the very first day of the year. At the end of May, an additional victim was identified as a 25-year-old lady from Ohio who was assaulted. While she was out walking in the park, she was suddenly propelled an incredible three meters, or ten feet, into the air.
Therefore, if you want to avoid the same fate as this reporter for NBC, please, please, please do not interact with, approach, or come anywhere near these animals.
