Super straightforward visual aid for National Parks visitors who are looking for a bit of clarity when it comes to petting wildlife. Not to create any undo confusion it’s worth pointing out the chart is a obviously satirical and meant to dissuade potential bison petters from getting rag dolled.

Don’t forget, National Park regulations require that you stay at least 25 yards away from all wildlife (including bison, elk and deer) and at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves. Disregarding these guidelines can result in fines, injury, and even death.

Here’s the NPS’s message to visitors encountering wildlife: 

Observing wildlife in their native habitat can be a fun, thrilling, and educational experience—filled with wonder and adventure. When you follow safe wildlife watching practices, you protect the health of the wildlife…and yourself! Know the risks of getting too close to wild animals and how to avoid them.
