We're not the only ones saying it, but we'll add our voice to the choir when we repeat, for the umpteenth time, "Please don't approach the bison." Heck, you're probably tired of hearing it.
Don't approach them even though they're cute. Don't approach them even though they're sleepy. Don't approach them if you have the urge to commune with nature. Don't approach them even if you think it'll make a great photo op. Just, please, don't touch them.
That's the message we wish we could relay to this tourist at Yellowstone National Park who left his car for one of the silliest reasons of all - to get a bison out of the road. Granted, he didn't get close enough to the bison to pet them, showing that he has some sense, but he's still getting too close. Plus, why go to Yellowstone National Park to be in a rush? Rather than get impatient with the noble bison, symbol of the American West, why not enjoy being able to see them (fairly) up close?
