This is the bison's country; we just live here.
They were here before we were, and chances are they'll be here when we're gone. After all, they managed to survive near-total eradication on the continent. And don't forget, Yellowstone bison are the meanest and toughest of them all - Yellowstone is the only place in North America where wild North American bison survived the glut of hunting in the 19th century.
So when you camp in Yellowstone, you've got to realize that bison and/or grizzly bears, black bears, elk, badgers, moose, and possibly Bigfoot are bound to wander into your camp. And maybe, like the bison captured in this video, they'll form their own fight club as well.
And it was probably rutting season when this was filmed, that magical time of the year when a male bison's fancy turns to thoughts of love and rampage. Every year, rutting season is accompanied by a litany of smashed cars, popped tires, and injured tourists. Hell hath no fury like a rutting bison. Well, except for a grizzly bear, maybe.
