Watch This Bison Fight at Yellowstone National Park
Remember to keep your distance from wildlife in Yellowstone National Park.
Yellowstone National Park released a video of some male bison fighting on a road near a herd. The reason why they are fighting is due to currently it is mating season and the bison will be more aggressive during this time.
Check out this video from Yellowstone National Park's Facebook.
Bison mating season is still going on in the park. Male bison are particularly aggressive right now, though all bison...

That one bison wasn't messing around and landed a pretty good body check on that other male.
Even if you are in a vehicle, keep your distance from bison. They won't hesitate to protect themselves or the herd if they feel threatened. Their senses are heightened right now too.
Yellowstone National Park recommends you stay AT LEAST 25 yards away from bison and elk and 100 yards away from all other wildlife.
We had a rash of incidents with bison when the park reopened back in June but luckily we haven't heard anything for a while and let's keep that going.
Yellowstone National Park is not a petting zoo and we should respect their space and keep our distance.
Also for a heads up, we will be heading into rut season soon and that's mating season for the Elk and they have been known to ram cars who get too close in Yellowstone National Park. Trust me, you don't want an elk with all those pointy antlers punching big holes in your car.
Just some food for thought.
