Yellowstone National Park tweeted out a video of an aggressive bison violently charging another bison. The park says the video serves as a reminder for how dangerous the animals can be.
The video is posted below.
The brief 8-second clip shows a bison charging out of a herd and colliding with another bison broadside, pushing the other animal off a park roadway.

“Bison mating is still going on in Yellowstone,” the park tweeted along with the video. “Male bison are particularly aggressive right now, though all bison and other wildlife can be dangerous.”
The Yellowstone National Park website advises to never approach animals in the park.
“The animals in Yellowstone are wild and unpredictable, no matter how calm they appear to be. The safest (and often best) view of wildlife is from inside a car. Always stay at least 100 yards (91 m) away from bears and wolves, and at least 25 yards (23 m) away from all other animals, including bison and elk.”
Bison mating is still going on in #Yellowstone. Male bison are particularly aggressive right now, though all bison and other wildlife can be dangerous. Always keep your distance—25 yards from #bison & elk; 100 yards from all other wildlife.#NationalPark #WhatWildlifeDoWednesday pic.twitter.com/IoVcAuPk8r— yellowstonenps (@YellowstoneNPS) August 12, 2020
