A man was captured on mobile phone video taunting a large bison in Yellowstone National Park in the U.S. state of Wyoming this week, according to the New York Post. We need people to be stewards of Yellowstone. I videoed him from our vehicle as he was walking and making growling sounds.

At least one person is gored by a bison each year at the famed park. "He gestured to the animal to get off the road and then proceeded to challenge him", Jones said. Bison are unpredictable and can run three times faster than humans.

The National Park Service advises that visitors "always remain" at least 100 yards (about 90 metres) from bears or wolves, and at least 25 yards (20 metres) away from all other wildlife. However, when the bison walks over to the shoulder of the road, the man continues to follow it and thump his chest with his fists.

The park is holding 89 bison in quarantine corrals to certify they are free of the disease brucellosis before they can be transferred to the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.
