She is incredibly lucky. Hopefully the Bison doesn't have to pay the ultimate price for a human's stupidity.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think bison are ever put down for aggressive behavior. Predators, definitely.

Hello ZackO and friends, In many trips to Yellowstone I have seen lots of people taking foolish chances. There are many Grizzlies in the Lamar valley of Yellowstone, often grazing near the road. I saw traffic backing up as a Grizzly was foraging near the road, people got out to take photos, some got too close. A Ranger drove up and sounded loud noises on his speaker, to no avail. Then he got out with a shotgun. As he cocked the pump shotgun the bear took off running. The Ranger said she knew the sound that precedes rubber bullets !
Another year people were trying to get close to a huge Bull Elk grazing down a steep bank on a river. They were getting way too close and cutting off his escape route. Lots of kids not being careful and Japanese tourists thinking it was Disneyland. Finally I yelled at the kids and the adults to stay back as it was a tragedy in the making. I have told many tourists to get back over the years. This should have been done in the Bison Incident. A small boy was gored to death by a Buck deer in Yosemite right near me many years ago as he tried to feed it. Be safe, David in Fresno and Sonora

We play against herds of silly women who think we are stuffed animals. The winners (us) get to eat the siding from their campers...

PS I grew up in Visalia. Family in Fresno. I hear it has been hot in your area. Up here near Seattle we have had three days over 75 degrees 😊

People can be very stupid. A few years back...we were camped in the Eastern Sierras and actually saw a grandmother encouraging her 4 yr. old granddaughter to get between a mother brown bear and her cub for a picture. I ran over...grabbed the kid and then my wife and I scolded her for being dumb. The grandma admitted that she didn't think the bears would hurt them. I explained otherwise and told her she is lucky she didn't kill her granddaughter. Later that night....grandma, grandpa and granddaughter came over to our spot....we shared a bottle of wine.....they thanked us.

Bisons are for putting desert or soup into.

Yeah a lot of idiots. One reason to have a good camera and a long lense. Year ago I did this. All my friends had the little cameras with the focal length of your normal cell phone. Loved it when they tried to take flash pictures of the mountains with their cameras. They made fun of me with my tripod SLR and Multiple lenses. But I got great night time mountain shots. 30 minute exposures on timer where I didn't even get close to it during the exposure. And back to the subject.

All my friends wanted pictures of the animals at Yellow Stone. They regularly got really massively stupidly close and still were to far away to get a good picture. I got my tripod out and my long lens. Other than when they got in the way I got great pictures.

In this day and age of cell phone cameras still can't beat a good camera and lenses.

Big Hairy Creatures are not a factor with campingbin Australia. It is a very safe activity unless you get struck by lightening
No Snakes and Spiders😂 do not come in it.
That is why we can use tent trailers like this

You can, in a way. If you want to see a good picture of a moose, Google "moose photos". You'll find thousands of great pix.

As a professional photographer for over fifty years, since I retired, I've found no reason to take pictures of a moose.
