Earlier this summer, three tourists were gored by bison in separate incidents in Yellowstone National Park.

This nearly makes four, or five, or six.

August will be over soon.

Enjoy.

    Looks like “Dad” (or some other family member) thought it was funny that the smallest child was almost killed. Big grin on his face at the end of the clip. GREAT. Of course, maybe he knows the child better than the rest of us do and thinks that would have been a good thing? Idiots.

    I was rooting for the losing team. Maybe next time…….

    This also happened many years ago and the person that was gored said in an interview ” why do they allow these wild things here?”

    The park ranger was quoted as saying ” because they live here, the others are tourists”

    Luckily “stupid human season” is almost over!

    Visitors read this site. So maybe stop the derogatory comments about visitors. Jackson is blessed with magical beauty. But to constantly hear locals deride visitors is not that pretty. Or in Jackson’s interest. Even the debate on who is really a local is less than beneficial. Localism is a form of bigotry. We are all visitors on this planet and how long we have been in a specific place is one thing that is just a fact that cannot be changed (like race, etc.). So why treat people differently because of it. The only thing that should matter is how we treat each other.

    Maybe their ACTIONS show signs of inexperience or lack of knowledge on how to handle a wildlife encounter. But why take it one step further and attack them on a PERSONAL level as “idiots” and “stupid human”? Do you educate your own children on what is the appropriate action through name calling? Or just visitors?

    Hey JS. Although I agree very little with you on the issues, congrats on making it to the next round for the council.

    im sorry but idiot is the correct term. and you only have to spend a season at the village to see we have plenty of local idiots as well.

    ps well done js

    Disagree. Many (not most) visitors are stupid, revealed by their dreadful lack of:
    -Respect for wildlife
    -Inherent survival skills
    Stupid just fits. Sorry if this is harsh and if word has entered the lexicon of the un-PC, but its clear harshness might save some stupid person’s life one day.

    Also, fairly sure that the very definition of stupid would include terms like ‘inexperienced’ or ‘lack of knowledge’.

    Finally, how long you live in a place as an adult is nothing like race. I can choose to move. i cant choose to be black…unless you take the 80′s movie Soul Man as factual.

    No, Chad. Stupidity is defined as “a poor ability to understand or to profit from experience”. The key word is ABILITY. So no matter the information or experience, an idiot or stupid human is not ABLE to understand.

    If there had been no movement in our world, race would not be an issue. Everyone would still be in majority all the time – stay with your group and you will not be a minority. No diversity, no multi-culturism. Point is you should not have to move in order to be respected for who you are as a person rather than how long you have lived in a place.

    Once in a place, you cannot change your arrival date. It is what it is. You cannot choose for it to have been ten years earlier. And it should not matter for how you are being treated.

    As a recent tourist to JH, I couldn’t believe how stupidly people acted around the bison. Even if you’re not a great outdoors person, there are warnings posted everywhere you go! At yellowstone, we even got a special flyer about bison, printed on bright yellow paper, that could not have been more clear. There was even a little picture in case you couldn’t read English. Here in NYC, visitors can be a nuisance, but I guess I should be glad their silliness won’t get them killed.
    ps: is it possible to be homesick for a place i’ve only visited twice?

  15. js August 26, 2012 9:29 am

    Absolutely! Thanks.
