Funny! social distancing in the wild

A reporter was recently shooting a news piece at Yellowstone when a herd of bison came close. Too close. His reaction is priceless! And the National Parks Service had something to say about it.

I would maintain a respectable distance too! Those are huge animals!

The running part didn't surprise me, but woah, the JUMPING! I had no idea!

I didn't know they could jump! I'd keep my distance, too.

That's interesting about the jumping. The reporter did the right thing. You never know when they might charge.

Smart reporter. Sometimes people think they only need to worry about predators but you really don't want to mess with a bison. Or an elk. Or a moose. Especially not when they're in rut! (Shouldn't be in rut yet, though.)
