Video Explaining Why You Don’t Mess With Big Wyoming Bison
Bison are big, bad and don't take any crap from anyone, so leave them alone.
Simple statement, right?
Sometimes I wonder if Tourons speak or read a different language. Time and time again, the rules are repeated. There are signs that tell you to stay away from the animals, not to feed the animals and that the animals are wild.
I understand that some people have an obsession with furry creatures. Anything from a dog to a bison, if it looks snuggly and cuddly, they feel it needs to be touched or held. As time as told us, that's not the case and you should stop now.
When you enter the state of Wyoming from another state, and are pulling a boat behind your vehicle, it's mandatory to stop at an Aquatic Invasive Species checkpoint. If you have a watercraft and the checkpoint is open, there are no options to pass it up.
I've thought we should have a visitors checkpoint. The first visitors center you come to when entering Wyoming, you have to stop, watch a quick video, sign a waiver and then continue on.
If you're flying in for a visit, that process should be done on the plane before landing.
If this was done, there would be zero excuses for trying to pet the bison, wrestle a bear or cuddle a mountain lion.
Across the country there is a very large RVing Community and these folks travel all over to different parts of the country stopping in different locations and taking in the sights of the US.
These folks are, usually, seasoned travelers and have seen the worst of the worst and best of the best of Tourons.
RV Lifestyle on YouTube is a couple of retired journalists that are in that RVing community. They've made a video that does a good job explaining the process.
Enjoy your summer travels, be safe and help protect your fellow travelers do the same.
