The Importance of Not Disturbing Wildlife

Wild animals, including bison, are unpredictable and can be dangerous. It is important to remember that national parks are their home, and we are just visitors. It is our responsibility to respect their space and not disturb them. 

Here are some crucial guidelines to follow when visiting a national park or any other natural habitat:

  • Maintain a Safe Distance: Always keep a safe distance from wildlife. The National Park Service recommends staying a minimum of 25 yards away from large animals like bison and elk and a minimum of 100 yards away from predators like wolves and bears.
  • Avoid Feeding the Animals: Feeding wildlife is not only dangerous for humans, but it is also harmful to the animals. It can lead to poor nutrition, disease, and habituation of human food.
  • Stay on Designated Trails: Venturing off designated trails can disturb wildlife and damage their habitat. It can also increase the risk of an encounter with a dangerous animal.
  • Do Not Honk or Make Loud Noises: Loud noises can startle animals and cause them to act aggressively.
  • Respect Wildlife Closures: Areas may be temporarily closed to protect wildlife during sensitive times such as mating, nesting, or calving. It is essential to respect these closures for the well-being of the animals.

When I see a self absorbed person (like woman in recent video) trying to take a picture with a Bison~ I get so irked I wish the bison would shift his wt,just a nudge her to knock her off her feet! Bison are not there to entertain,that is the Bison's home, just observe them. Dont get so full of yourself that you think you can get next to them, & mess with them. Who will pay when something happens? The Bison! The cost is his/her life☹️ Its time to punish the people that screw with any of the wildlife. The ramming of the car, is unfortunate but understandable. It's too bad it wasn't the "selfie" gal's car...that would be priceless😂

They were on a park road and stayed in their car. They did not provoke the animal. Unfortunate for them but they did nothing wrong.
