We’ve seen the videos many, many times. Tourists come to Yellowstone and attempt to pet bison.
The result? Oftentimes, not good.
Deion Broxton, from KTVM TV in Bozeman, Montana, did the right thing. He saw a herd of bison coming his way and bailed out.
“Oh my God,” he muttered while carefully observing the approaching herd.
“I ain’t messing with you,” he said moments later, while walking off-camera and to his car.
“Oh, no,” he continued while packing his car with his gear. “Oh no, I ain’t messing with you.”
His actions got him praise from the official Yellowstone Twitter account.
“A perfect example of what to do when approached by wildlife! Rolling on the floor laughing Thanks Deion for putting the #YellowstonePledge into action!” they tweeted.
As for that herd of bison, those were some serious animals. Once he got to a safe location, he shot a quick video of them.
