Woman approaches bison for a selfie in Yellowstone National Park

A video of a woman is receiving backlash on social media after being seen approaching a wild bison for a selfie.

According to witnesses at the park, she was repeatedly told not to approach the animal for a picture, but did so anyway.

Taking selfies dangerously close to wild animals, such as bison, can pose significant risks to both the individual taking the photo and the animals themselves.

Bison are large and powerful creatures, and they can become aggressive if they feel threatened or cornered.

TThey have been around for thousands of years and are often referred to as a “keystone species” due to their significant impact on the ecosystem.

Park regulations require that people stay at least 25 yards (23 m) away from all wildlife (including bison, elk and deer) and at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves

Yellowstone National Park, like many other wildlife conservation areas, has guidelines and rules in place to ensure the safety of both visitors and the park’s ecosystem.
