Bison calf downed in Yellowstone Park after man disturbed it



Yellowstone National Park, Montana – According to a news statement issued on Tuesday morning, police in Yellowstone National Park are seeking information from the public regarding a collision that took place on Saturday night between an unnamed male and a young bison calf.

The calf’s herd abandoned it when the man interacted with it.

The calf was abandoned and was posing a threat to people and automobiles on a road, so park authorities tried in vain to reunite it with the herd but were forced to put it to death.

An unnamed white male in his 40s to 50s wearing a blue shirt and black jeans is wanted by police.

Near the meeting of the Lamar River and Soda Butte Creek in Lamar Valley, the guy approached a young bison calf.

When the herd crossed the Lamar River, the calf was separated from its mother. The man lifted the calf out of the water and onto the road while it whimpered.

Later, observers saw the calf approach and follow vehicles and humans.

According to the Park, human involvement might lead wildlife to reject their young.

“Approaching wild animals can drastically affect their well-being and, in this case, their survival,” the Park says.

Safety for both humans and animals depends on everyone exercising sound judgment and abiding by basic standards.

According to park laws, visitors must maintain a minimum distance of 25 yards from all animals, including bison, elk, and deer, and a minimum distance of 100 yards from bears and wolves.

These laws can be broken, which can lead to penalties, harm, or even death.

Investigations into this occurrence are still ongoing.
