VIDEO: Herd of Bison Get Spooked, Break Windshield Glass
December 31, 2020
The slightest thing can set off a herd of cattle - or bison. The most famous example from pop culture is probably the John Wayne classic "Red River," in which a cowboy with a sweet tooth sneaks a little sugar out of the chuck wagon, knocking over a handful of pots and pans, resulting in a stampede in which a man is trampled. And while this wouldn't quite qualify as a stampede, when a couple of thousand tons of bison are rushing past, you might not be able to come up with a better term.
In this case the herd is set off by a truck's backup alarm. Soon the cars are engulfed in bison, and our videographers have some near misses.
"Bro - WHAT?" one of the people in the car exclaims.
And then, as one of the bison takes the corner around the car a little close, the man filming says, "...don't, don't, don't, don't."
Luckily for them, that bison doesn't hit the car. Unluckily, another one does a moment later; just a tap, but enough to put a network of cracks in the corner of their windshield. Hope they have bison insurance!
As a side note, if you are planning to film bison as they smash into your car, gore you, or otherwise pulverize you, please remember to film horizontally.
