  • Video shows man taunting bison at Yellowstone National Park

In the video, a man wearing a blue T-shirt and shorts can be seen approaching a bison that was holding up traffic by standing in the middle of a two-way road.

Superintendent Dan Wenk is quoted as saying: "The individual's behavior in this video is reckless, dangerous, and illegal".

The following video was posted on Facebook by Lindsey Jones and captures a man taunting the colossal animal. One of those people was Reinke, who rangers drove to Helena, where he was booked into the Yellowstone Jail without bond, according to the National Park Service release. "He gestured to the animal to get off the road and then proceeded to challenge him", Jones said. In the span of just under a minute, the gentleman can be seen nearly daring the bison to charge him, which it appeared to do.

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.

"People who ignore these rules are risking their lives and threatening the park experience for everyone else". "We've seen it, and rangers are actively investigating the incident".

He continued, "The best way to view wildlife is from a safe distance".

Past year there were five bison attacks in the park.

As the man edges nearer, the animal suddenly turns around and charges.
