There’s not an official holiday or anything but this is the season of love if you’re a bison.

Wyoming citizens know that means don’t come anywhere close to the animals (as usual).

But since this is tourist season, Yellowstone National Park is alerting morons our visitor friends that they really need to keep their distance.

To illustrate their point, the park posted a video on its Facebook page showing the raw strength of these animals.

“Male bison are particularly aggressive right now, though all bison and other wildlife can be dangerous,” the post reads.

“Remember to always keep your distance—25 yards from bison and elk; 100 yards from all other wildlife,” they said.

After watching the video, it might be better to stay a mile away from bison.

It’s your move, tourists.
