If you saw a hulking bison wandering around outside your vehicle, what would you do? As the animal approaches, the man is seen dodging it at the very last second.
"The individual's behavior in this video is reckless, risky and illegal", a spokesman for the public affairs office of Yellowstone National Park told ABC News.
At first, it appears as if the man is trying to encourage the large animal to move to the side of the road by yelling at it.
As you might imagine, eventually the bison charges at him, and while he narrowly avoids getting hit, the footage has still landed him in hot water. One of those people was Reinke, who rangers drove to Helena, where he was booked into the Yellowstone Jail without bond, according to the National Park Service release.
After quickly dodging another rampage, the man and bison go their separate ways.
Visitors are required to stay at least 25 yards from animals such as bison and elk, and 100 yards from bears and wolves, park rules state. "We've seen it, and rangers are actively investigating the incident". These distances safeguard both visitors and the experience of sharing a landscape with thousands of freely-roaming animals.
There is no word on whether the man has been identified or ticketed by park authorities.
A month prior, on May 2, a 72-year-old Idaho woman was butted in the thigh, pushed and tossed off a trail by a bison near Old Faithful geyser.
