Another incident at Yellowstone. A whole
group of the scum walked right up to a
bison closing to less then 15-feet and
guess what happened?

The bison charged and an air head female
from California got herself gored.

Call me mean and nasty but I feel sorry
for the buffalo that it had to bother
itself to take the taxing effort to deal
with this air head.

I personally once saw a group of tourists
try to pet a cow moose once. They were
lucky that the moose ran in a different
direction then at them when they got too
close which is not exactly typical for
moose.

Anyone else besides me get really annoyed
with these air head fools? I mean if we
really want to get into the extreme, many
years ago there was that woman who put
honey on her young child's hand so that
her child could get a black bear to come
close enough for her child to be able to
pet the bear!!! Well the kid ended up
missing a hand and they had to track down
the bear and put it down. I argue that
there was more reason to have the air head
put down then the bear put down, although
I do understand that a bear who has
figured out humans especially little ones
are meat coated with honey is a potential
future hazard that must be dealt with.

Just had to vent when this popped up in my
local news feed. It's like, oh God, do
they ever learn !!!

I sometimes get a good laugh at what these tourons think about wild
animals.   I read the bison story recently and just chuckled. Maybe
I'm sick but I can't believe what some of these people do.

Good for the Bison. It's just a reminder that no matter how technologically advanced we become, natural selection still applies.

Tatanka, woa wasteŽ!

Lakota for Good on you Buffalo!

Now I'm a half breed reservation raised, but even the
white side of me knows ya don't play with almost a ton of
buffalo. Like my great uncle John said many times up on
the rez; "Stupid whiteman."

Like idiots that play with gators, rattlesnakes, and the
like. Stupid! There's a reason they stay where they do
and we don't have any business messing with them.
Accidental encounter with injury, regrettable.
Purposeful or intentional encounter with injury or death
as a result, STUPID!
And I don't feel sorry for stupid.

The sad part of these encounters is that it's the animal that ends up loosing it's life and not the idiot. There, I said it. Apologues to no one! I have much more sympathy and tolerance for animals than humans.

Buff just being a buffalo. It's what they do.





Photos take via a 300mm zoom lens on my digital camera. NOT by walking up and saying "Hi Buff, how 'bout a selfie with me?"
