Yellowstone Park superintendent: Man taunting bison was 'reckles

Video shows man taunting bison at Yellowstone National Park

The man runs away, then spins around and raises his arms.

Bystander Lindsey Jones of Elko, Nev., captured video of the shorts-wearing man beating his chest as he approached the animal, which promptly charged at him on the two-way road in Hayden Valley.

Dan Wenk Park Superintendent had this to say after watching the viral video clip.

As you might imagine, eventually the bison charges at him, and while he narrowly avoids getting hit, the footage has still landed him in hot water. One fellow motorist can be heard yelling "Get out of there!" to the idiot prankster, but others are simply fascinated by the show he's putting on.

According to the National Park, regulations require people to remain at least 25 yards from animals like bison and elk, and 100 yards from bears and wolves. "These distances safeguard both visitors and a remarkable experience of sharing landscape with thousands of freely roaming animals".

The man jumped out of the way and did not appear to be injured by the bison as they go their separate ways in the video.

On Thursday, Yellowstone National Park officials posted a message on Facebook saying they're aware of the incident and their rangers are actively investigating it. When the animal gets close, he scampers away.

After receiving multiple complaints from park visitors about someone tormenting wildlife, authorities believe Reinke started harassing the bison after the traffic stop.

Previous year there were five bison attacks in the park. One way to do that is to keep your distance from wildlife.
