Bison cub in Yellow Stone Park euthanized for unwise tourist behavoiur

baby bisonIncorrect tourist behaviour is affecting the animals in the Yellow Stone National Park. Recently a new born bison calf was picked by tourist into their car as they thought that the calf would die of cold. Later when the calf was returned to its herd it was rejected and had to be euthanized. Such inappropriate and dangerous behaviour is considered illegal by the National park Service.



Such foolhardy human behaviour with the animals is putting these animals in grave danger. Last month a   woman reached out to a bison to pat the animal as if she were patting a dog. Another case was reported when tourists tried to click selfies with a bison only to be tossed in the air and jabbed by the horns. The four tourists had to be hospitalised.



These actions from tourists are causing more hazards to the animals affecting their wellbeing drastically. People are strictly told to maintain a 25 yard distance from the wild animals and at least hundred yard distance from bear and wolves. These regulations if not followed can lead to fines, injuries and even death. The National Parks Service said that bison cause more injures to people than any other animal in Yellowstone’s 3,500 sq mile expanse. People are expected to maintain the rules and keep at some distance from the animals to ensure their own safety as well as the safety of the animals.

    You would think humans would have more sense than to pick up a wild animal or the other stupid things they do to wildlife. The poor animal had to die because of someone who can’t read or has any common sense.
