Turns out Yellowstone’s dumbest animal was actually a person.
Cell phone video captured by tourist Lindsey Jones shows a shorts-wearing numbskull taunting a bison in the middle of the road for no discernible reason.
Predictably, the bison——now surrounded by vehicles and probably scared half to death——charges the guy, who only narrowly escapes a goring.

Turns out the story isn’t over quite yet.
It just so happens that harrassing wildlife is illegal, and following the video going viral, the man was arrested while at a nearby motel.
You probably won’t be surprised to learn this guy is quite the troublemaker. On July 28th, while on a tour of major national parks, he was arrested by law enforcement rangers at Grand Teton National Park for drunk and disorderly conduct.
On the 31st, his vehicle was pulled over, and he appeared to be intoxicated and argumentative. Thankfully, he wasn’t driving, and was only cited for failure to wear a safety belt.
Keep in mind this was the SAME DAY as the bison encounter. So this guy was on a real tear.
