Utard films herself being gored by bison

By Jim Stanford on July 27, 2010

Tags: , , ,

Here’s the story of a Farr West, Utah, woman who videotaped a bison trampling her in Yellowstone National Park last week.

Not explained in any of the media coverage of the incident: who threw the stick at the bison, and why no charges have been pressed for harassing wildlife.

If this clip doesn’t sate your running-of-the-bulls blood lust for tourist trampling, there are much better videos on YouTube of bison attacks.

Be smart, people. Stick to the stuffed bison on the Jackson Town Square.

    the buffalo’s retired… it’s an elk in the square now.

    Who do we reach at the park service to pursue charges? Ive questioned the same lack of action since I saw this last week on TV. However, since they release polygamist child rapists on “technicalities” in Utah, I suspect justice there is like mcdonald’s ice cream: soft served.

    The bison trampled and gored her for throwing a stick. I guess he served his own justice, you PETA morons.

    I’ve seen that video a few times, and though I don’t have the ability to slow it down frame-by-frame, it looks to me like the buffalo “flicked” the stick up onto his own back, and that spooked him. I thought the same thing about someone throwing a stick at the buffalo, but the more times I saw the video, the more it appears to me that the buffalo managed to toss it on his own back from the ground. That being said, she should still be charged – why on earth would someone get that close to a buffalo, and then have the brass to publicize it.

    “teton tards” desperatly seeking to appear smarter than “utards”. somebody needs to look up definition of gore, and when was she filming herself, I missed it. I also think she was warning the other people not to get too close. sure looks like buffalo flipped up the object. by sharing the video in it self will sure keep people away from bison, but I,m sure you knew she had a sinister red neck profit plan. but yea lets have em all arrested. if that doesn’t work we can call ” UnderDog”

    I think its difficult to tell whether he threw it up on himself or it was thrown at him from the left of the screen and he raised his head in response. I tend to think it was thrown by the man in this video.

  7. Jim Stanford July 27, 2010 9:47 pm

    One of the stories I read about the incident said another nearby party threw the stick. That’s why I was curious why no effort to track down that person and arrest them.

    Who cares u think a stick really hurt a bison lol.

    Well, obviously it’s ok to taunt wild animals in the national parks where they are supposed to be protected. Idiots! The very fact that a stick hitting a buffalo can aggravate it enough to become aggressive in its own self defense says that it is dangerous for the animal. Running through trees, attacking people, and being generally out of control is a great way for an animal of this size to be injured. Plus, if it attacks people, chances are it will be captured and either killed or relocated, things that are obviously to the detriment of the health of the animal. Anyone who thinks it’s ok to throw anything at an animal in a national park should be subjected to the laws that govern the parks, the laws that protect the animals in the parks. Breaking the law in a national park is no different than breaking a law outside your own front door. If you can’t abide by the rules, then stay away.

    It has to do the with Utah State and University of Colorado moving to the Pac 10.
    Ralphie was doing an early practice on Offensive line drill.

  11. Chad July 28, 2010 1:05 pm

    Yeah, you PETA morons! Demanding adherence to federal laws and such! Next thing they’re going to do is make me divorce my child-bride! If she doesnt like it, she can leave any time. We need to live in a world with more animal and child-levied justice. None of this “investigation” and “research” and “code of laws”. It just makes sense. Respond with your gut, not your mind I always say.

    God Bless Utah

    If in fact an object was thrown and a park ranger saw it, a ticket/summons would have been issued. From the time of the incident to when the media got it. i,m sure there were many stories, but we all know the media is always right, especially the environgelic and evangelic media, because their readers just “know”. But your right, “running through the trees” Oh my God! the horror! That might have been the most fun that bison’s had since mating season, imagine the talk back at the wallow. but no your right, I’m sure we’re talking PTTBS (post traumatic tourist butting syndrome) oh the guilt of surviving such a disaster. Maybe we could have groups of teton pedalists, our buffalo soldiers (fighting on arrival, fighting for survival oye! yoe! yoe!: {everyone sing along}) going out to track down “that person” and arrest “them”, Doesn’t the shift from singular to plural denote social bigotry or just your brand of political tard arrogance? your going to need more buffalo soldiers and buffalo counselors, oye yoe yoe,( are ya still singing?).

    The following lesson is for everyone:

    Your: Possessive. As in “Your grasp of English is questionable, which marginalizes your opinion.”

    You’re: Conjunction of ‘you’ and ‘are’. As in “You’re butchering written language.”

    Combined: “You’re likely to be intellectually hindered if your education prevented basic understanding of English.”

  14. Brad July 28, 2010 3:08 pm

    My sentiments exactly, Chad. Over at the Planet blog, however, someone actually made this blunder the other way around; used the contraction in place of the possessive. Which requires a little more work, actually.

  15. Chad July 28, 2010 3:39 pm

    Another is Their, They’re and There; If you’re/your is a challenge, these three are like quantum physics. Sigh.

  16. pc July 28, 2010 3:53 pm

    oh the mediocre elitism of not having my uyer’s right, and i don’t type worth a damn either, your uses one less peck, as in hunt and peck but then why would i need to impress any in this group, except english grammarians. oh woe is me, I think the point I made has more logic and humor. sorry I ‘m not up to your caliber of the laws of english grammer and seeing how i am left-handed maybe i should be arrested too Tee Hee. but if thats the best ya got go with it.

  17. Brad July 28, 2010 4:12 pm

    Language is as precise as mathematics, pc (or should be anyway). It’s just a shame that blogoshpere usage and laziness have further sullied the trend toward inaccuracy. That’s the best I’ve got.

  18. D July 28, 2010 4:51 pm


    JP The bison took care of the problem. Since it didn’t get hurt just give it up. Could, If, possible, etc. but didn’t. Justice served…. Nothing to see hear move on.

  19. danno July 28, 2010 8:51 pm

    Chad, give it up, there is no crime to prosecute and even if there was noone will be wasting their time pursuing it. As for the poor grasp of grammar on display on most blog threads, well, this is the product that our union dominated public school systems produce. Tenure, pensions and benefits for the staff on the public dime but kids that can barely write and don’t know where Wyoming is on a map. But at least they do know it is ok for Heather to have two Mommies and that Barack Obama is the greatest President ever.

  20. Jim Stanford July 28, 2010 10:29 pm

    Guys, good grammar is always appreciated, particularly on this blog. Misspellings and misplaced apostrophes take away from the point you’re trying to make. Typos drive people crazy.

    I am a product of public schools and somehow managed to come out literate. They’re only as good as we make them.

    The stick was on the bison’s head, between its’ horns and when he threw back his head, it fell onto his back, and the bison rodeo began. I was outraged that someone would throw a stick at a bison, when I saw one version of this video, but there are other versions of this video, and some are slowed down. You can see the stick, pretty clearly on the bison’s head.
    The bison are getting cranky right now. I heard of two separate photo safari tour guides having their cars rammed by bison in the same day, recently. One was in Yellowstone, and the other in GTNP.

  22. Suzy July 29, 2010 6:58 am

    (I have a little trouble with it’s and its’…but I think I got it right) “Allot,” for “a lot,” drives me crazy.

    The best misspelling I ever saw was spotted in a store offering an “asstorment,” of items! (I’ve never looked at the word, “assortment,” the same since.)

  23. D July 29, 2010 8:52 am

    It obviously looks better and helps you argument, however when you’re typing on the fly from a blackberry I am not going to crucify you because you misspelled a word, missed a commas, or didn’t proof read it over and over. You can make a great argument and be very smart with mistakes in your post. I have seen mistakes in the blog post itself but the world kept spinning around right? Now if I was a Journalism or English major I may take offense but that accounts for a fraction of the population and so…. like I said get a life not a big deal. I guess we all have our own opinion though right?

    grammer nazi’s are book worms that mommy and daddy bought an education for and they picked english or journalism now they do nothing but grade people’s comments on blogs and crap like that LOSER’s probably dont have a girl or boyfreind spend a lot of time on the computer in other words a bunch of JACKWAGONS!!! lol oh that video is great stupid UTARD lose some weight and stop Hazing animals in the park and u wont have any more problems!!!

  25. pc July 29, 2010 10:50 am

    hey youse guys, if typos make ya crazy, doesn’t that mean u’er already on the teton bi-polar edge?

  26. pc July 29, 2010 11:20 am

    sorry, meant teton bi-polar political edge

  27. Chad July 29, 2010 2:24 pm

    I’ll bite; What’s the teton bi-polar political edge?

  28. S July 29, 2010 3:59 pm

    There’s a full page of these videos on Yellowstone’s website, under “wildlife safety videos”:


    It’s too bad the park is set up like a Six Flags Great Adventure Wild Safari drive-thru zoo:


    I have been to both places, and the experiences are similar. You have to pay at the gate and then you sit in traffic.

    I hope we can break from the car culture in our national parks and promote motorless travel.

  29. pc July 29, 2010 5:27 pm

    environgelic vs. evangelic political emotionalism and scientology, delivered by the media that is used to lead intellectually, emotionally or economically insecure people, (but good grammerians) by the nose for the political and economic gain of a small minority and/or special interests. teton county tends to be very long on the environgelic side, i.e. we have an extremely high consumptive carbon foot print but we are now going to pretend that we are the greenest, smartest people going.
    the vertical greenhouse will produce veges with the highest energy foot-print known to man, but we will be “sustainable”

    Cher David le Rapide,
    Tu as absolument raison . Bien que je n’ai rien compris a ce que tu as écris dans la langue de Tacite.Toutes ces conneries montrent la désinvolture des gens d’ici qui s’attachent a des balivernes.Ils feraient mieux de discuter la pauvreté de certain dans notre conte.
    Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas la langue de Voltaire: tant pis.Elle était parlée dans cette vallée avant la langue de Shakespeare.
    Vous auriez du écouter votre professeur.
    David tu es le meilleur.
    Veuillez agréer cher ami mes salutations distinguées.

    How in the hell did you get lorem ipsum posted as a comment? But seriously…

    Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

    Utard…Thanks Jim, you just opened up a whole new world to me!

    Utard = tard from Utah

    lacktard = lactose intolerant

    glutard = gluten intolerant

    tard = someone who’s so retarded they don’t deserve the “re”

    extensive list here: http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1105035/pg1

    Just thought I’d help these comments be more ‘tarded

    I`m sure the Jackson Hole Chamber of commerce will be thrilled to find the above comments in circulation throughout Utah. Although why would any pseudo wilson local care!
