A reminder to keep an eye on your travel companions this summer. The woman in this article intentionally got too close to a Bison while visiting Yellowstone National Park. The animals in our national parks are not domesticated (in almost every case) and have little to no tolerance for tourists doing dumb things. It feels like every year we have to put out reminders like this because someone got too close to an elk during rutting season or wandered up to a bison for a selfie.
I feel like it is the responsibility of the blind or visually impaired person in the group to point out that someone is about to do something silly. Since your travel companions are usually narrating the happenings, you can take it upon yourself to reiterate the things that are going on… What do you mean Stacey is walking up to a Bison for a selfie??!?
Let’s have a safe and sane summer vacation season!
