Bison Nearly Gores Man Who Taunted Him At Yellowstone National Park

The video shows that the man was taunting a growling bison and was holding up traffic in Hayden Valley.

The man did not appear to be injured as he yelled at the animal and it charged.

According to KPAX-TV, the 55-year-old was on a trip visiting several national parks and had already been arrested on July 28 for drunk and disorderly conduct.

The man escaped a slumberous attack by the bison, but continues to taunt him once more - puffing out his chest and grunting a second time.

Lindsey Jones shared the video to Facebook and at one point can be heard in the background saying, "Oh God, oh no, no, no, no".

In a warning message on the National Park Service's official website for Yellowstone National Park, it says, "Wild animals are unpredictable and unsafe". The bison once again charges at the man.


The bison charges at him full-on and he begins to run away as the camera jerks.

Reinke was scheduled to make a court appearance on Friday.

According to the press release, Reinke has been traveling to national parks over the last week. Once the Yellowstone rangers connected the dots and realized the man was connected to multiple infractions as well as the wildlife harassment case an assistant US attorney requested his bond be revoked.

While rangers were searching for Reinke's vehicle, officials responded to a call about an incident in Glacier National Park where two guests were reported to be arguing and creating a disturbance in the dining room of the Many Glacier Hotel.

Visitors are required to stay at least 25 yards from animals such as bison and elk, and 100 yards from bears and wolves, park rules state.
