Man taunts huge bison, it doesn't go well

Wild plains bison

He turns back toward the bison, puffs up his chest and growls.

The bison - some of which can weigh up to 900 kilos and stand 1.8 metres tall - is having none of it and promptly charges at the man, video posted to YouTube by KRTV News shows.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, 59-year-old Kim Hancock was gored by a bison at Yellowstone not two months ago, after she got within 10 yards (9.1 meters) of the animal. Realize how privileged we are to have these national parks.

The man-versus-bison video is the latest example of humans approaching too close for creatures' comfort at one of America's most popular national parks.

Herbert did not comment on whether the man could be issued a citation. He again appeared to be intoxicated and was cited for not wearing a seatbelt.

Just days earlier, Reinke was arrested at Grand Teton National Park in what rangers said was a drunk and disorderly conduct incident.

The pastor denies the charges while USA officials have publicly insisted that Brunson is innocent and should be freed. It added that the US' "aggressive attitude serves no objective ", and vowed that it would respond in equal measure.

Reinke's bond was revoked per the request of the Assistant U.S. Attorney on August 2 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Reinke was transported to Helena, Montana, on Thursday night and handed over to Yellowstone rangers.

"To protect yourself and the animals you come to watch, always remain at least 100 yards (91 meters) from bears or wolves, and at least 25 yards (23 meters) from all other wildlife", notes the NPS.

"These distances safeguard both visitors and the remarkable experience of sharing a landscape with thousands of freely-roaming animals", he said in a Facebook post.

"People who ignore these rules are risking their lives and threatening the park experience for everyone else", Wenk told BNQT.

A short time later, Reinke harassed the bison, rangers suspect.
