Tourist attempt to pet Yellowstone bison.
Tourist attempt to pet Yellowstone bison.

This emergency nurse who witnessed two men approaching a bison at Yellowstone National Park and trying to touch it may have been joking when she commented “I’m going to be a first responder” but in the range of possibilities she wasn’t far off.

Not even a week ago an 83-year-old woman from Greenville, South Carolina was gored by a bison near the Storm Point Trail at Yellowstone Lake. After the incident the NPS wanted to remind folks that bison have injured more people in Yellowstone than any other animal and bison will defend their space when threatened. These dudes most definitely got into this bison personal space and were lucky they didn’t end up needing the services of the nurse who was watching their idiocy.
